Walking down Garfield Boulevard

Believe mural (Peter V. Bella/Cropped)

On Saturday morning, I photographed the Cricket matches in Washington Park.

As I headed back towards the El, I noticed a few things. There were two brightly colored murals one block apart. One was an anti-violence art mural. The other was simply, "BELIEVE".

You cannot miss the Schultze Bakery building on Garfield and Wabash. It was built in 1914. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is in disrepair and covered scaffolding surrounds it, preventing people from being struck by falling terra cotta.

There are rows of boarded up store fronts and views of downtown.

The older buildings in the area are beautiful. They are from a time when architecture was artistic and not sterile.
