In Response To: FAMILY HISTORY MONTH CHALLENGE #1 ()
I remember the apt. where we lived at 5119 S. Wentworth, Chicago. There was a business at street level with four apts on the second and third floors. We lived on the second floor with 5 or 6 rooms. We had cold heat (early 1940's), with a coal bin in one corner of the kitchen closest to the back door.
We lived with our Aunt Willie, ( my mother's oldest sister),and Uncle Bill. I had an older brother and two older sisters. At this time I was the baby of the family. Aunt Willie outlived all of her sibling, dying at 92 years.
After the war with housing at a premium. We had to move as many apts like ours were converted into kitchenettes. The apt. we had would become rooms with one kitchen & one bathroom for several folks. So was life in the big city.
