Thanks Ed for these wonderful pictures...my grandfather, John A. Brust worked here during the depression. Almost all the men in my family worked here. I recently moved to Illinois & I'm working on my family tree through ancestry.com. I've been trying to add as many photos of the area & places as I can. I remember summers visiting my grandmother & driving down snake alley....so much fun. How about Van's Tenderloins?? Do you have any pictures of that little place?? Thanks again!
