I really have to dig my real camera out of storage. This camera phone thing is killing me.

Just a few shots of the South Side.

The filming location for “Ray’s Music Exchange” in the Blues Brothers.

Here’s a side shot of the mural. In the movie it was supposed to be in the Maxwell Street Market but in reality it’s a few miles away.

Here’s a bad shot of the former J.C. Whitney-Warshawski warehouse and distribution building. It’s huge. It takes up about 8 City blocks.

The entrance would make you think Church but oddly it never was one.

Here’s a neat drawbridge over the South branch of the Chicago River.

And this is a former U.S. Army Depot. Ttyymmnn posted a vintage pic of this place a while back.

The old Westinghouse Electric building. At one time in Chicago anyone you met knew of at least one person that worked here.

And a bonus 1970 Chevy Bel-Air hiding in an alleyway.

This was a spur of the moment thing so maybe next time I’ll actually plan a route.
