BROTHER PREACHER MAN SAMUEL CHAMBERS 1979 and 2019
The desolate photo is where the entirety of Block 37 was, and much of the events in THE HOLY TERROR took place along that area on Randolph between State and Dearborn. The book set during the winter of 1989. The black and white photo found by happenstance when I was looking for old photos of Block 37. The man is still around, he's the character in my novel, his real name right here. This is the screed he hands out at his new spot at State and Madison. The new "BlockThirthSeven" wouldn't have him, that's for certain. They wouldn't have me, even. It isn't 1989 anymore.
