If these could talk…


I can’t help but wonder, when I walk old pathways through established neighborhoods, what stories lie within the paths. Some are known by historians. But many stories are lost; a few are family memories handed down to new generations. The physical histories are lost as new windows replace the old, new doors offer more welcoming entrances, new plants replace those past their time, and new residents appear.

I step on Victorian bricks, on a Victorian Chicago street, with Victorian homes on each side. Who else has walked my steps before?
