South Elgin, IL Part 1: The West Side

South Elgin is a village in the far western suburbs of Chicago. It is not the south part of Elgin, rather it is its own entity that is separate from Elgin, kind of like a suburb of Elgin. What you see is the more interesting, older part of the west side of town. The rest of the west side is just typical post-war suburban houses and strip malls, much like Schaumburg, IL. In the near future, I will post photos of the east side of town. It's not much, but it's home for now.

great to see and a nice change of pace for thread -- a lot of ohio looks just like this, minus any passenger train yard unfortunately.
