The Deep Tunnel Project was under construction along McCormick and Devon Avenue in Chicago to control storm water and sewage. It was billed as an anti-pollution campaign to mitigate sewage in residential basements and into Lake Michigan. Signage from Lincoln Village and Wiebolt's can be seen in #00-05 the background where I worked at Bronson Coles Studio as a photographer and darkroom printer. The Deep Tunnel Project was not off limits as seen in #03-04 where a man is enjoying his morning cigar while observing the construction project. The Deep Tunnel Project was also known as The Anti-Pollution Project as seen in signage with the construction worker in #06. The Deep Tunnel Project currently has a bike lane and playground equipment and Lincoln Village is a big draw for diners and shoppers. The young lady in #20-21 is referred to as Burger Queen. In #22 I am seated on the bus while taking a photo of the woman preparing to take a seat. While the bus is moving so is my camera at a low shutter speed, hence the camera shake. I have a knack for getting people to pose for me without hesitation. It is obvious when looking at #06-07 and #20-21 that there is a unhurried style of posing by my subjects. All that I can say is, thank you!
