Standing at the bus stop at 111th and Campbell I knew this was not an ordinary snow storm. I waited two hours for a bus that never came. It was Thursday morning, January 26, 1967. I needed to get to classes at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle campus. I didn't make it.
I gave up and walked the two blocks back to my home. Dropped off my briefcase and grabbed my camera. I ventured outside and took a walk in the snow. It was quiet. The snow was falling and there was very little traffic and no one to be seen walking about.
I took about a dozen B&W photos, mostly on or around Western Avenue, between 108th and 111th street. They show the snow and the lack of people or traffic. To this day, whenever I view any of my photos, I can relive that surreal feeling I got walking around as that historic snow fell on Chicago.
