Once upon a time

Auto row - According to Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," several car dealers were located north of the tracks along Chicago Avenue between Lincoln and Washington streets, and there were a few more just south of the tracks as well. This photo of the Chevy dealer, where Burdi now is, was once thought to be the location of an illegal beer depot. The photo, taken looking east down Hinsdale Avenue from Lincoln, is from about 1930.
