The SJ-R Looks Back
My favorite is the World War II bomber taking of from what is now Dirksen Parkway in 1942 after earlier having made an emergency landing.
There’s also a good aerial photo of the intersection of Wabash and Veterans Parkway from 1977, not long after White Oaks Mall opened. It was the edge of Springfield at the time and the photo shows that quite well. Hey Russ, this would be the Springfield Rewind ultimate challenge.
Hopefully the SJ-R will keep this link active for some time to come. I’d like them to do more of this.
