Places from the past - Hinsdale's building services supervisor, Jim Piontkowski, a Hinsdale Central graduate, moved to Hinsdale in 1971 and spent many years here in his youth. Having spent more than 40 years with the village, there isn't a lot about Hinsdale he doesn't know or hasn't photographed. This photo from 1979 was taken at 20 W. Hinsdale Ave., where Brown Insurance and Velvet Touch were located. The upstairs was an apartment. The building is now home to Hinsdale Barber Shop. Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old? We'd love to share it with our readers. Stop by our office at 7 W. First St. or email it to [email protected].
