That looks really familiar. Is that under the "L" on the south side of Chicago where Warshawski's was??

State and Archer was where the Store was.

For those that don't know who or what Warshawski's was they evolved into J C Whitney over the years.

It was the place you went to to get parts for your "A" or "AA" in Chicago even into the early 70's.

Warshawski aka JC Whitney was at 1916 S. State St. They had a lot of Model A parts even in the '60's, I used to go down there until the neighborhood got too dangerous. My car was broken into while I was in the store, and a friend of mine told me he was robbed at gunpoint in the Warshawski parking lot across the street from the store. Most of their parts were pretty crappy anyway. That's where the Model A hub caps that say "Fool" instead of "Ford" came from.
