Melrose Park Illinois ( and Bellwood ) - Chicago suburbs

Melrose Park

Just west of the Desplaines river, mos of these photos are from 1st and 5th ave S of Lake street.

Founded in 1871 it is currently gentrifying with an interesting mix .

What most people expect






Coverall sideing




United Way










But look closer


And turn the corner










































Now a municipal building


This must have been a funeral home before being remade into a church




Round church - Holy Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church


Services en espanol


Renovated


Some housing in need of upkeep.




Alot of nice bungalows and apartments.










Broadview West of Melrose Park
Bet use of a walkway - Rock of Ages Baptist Church


NOT a storfront church -








And some industrial feel B L Downey
