3872Can anyone help identify the location of this photo?  It is part of a collection of 1970s era slides that the library recently obtained.  Most of the slides center around the intersection of Schaumburg and Roselle Roads.  I think this might be a view looking south down Roselle Road.

Why do I think that?  Many people have mentioned that before Roselle Road was widened and curb and gutter were installed, the ditches on Roselle Road were quite deep.  Also, that building at the top of the hill on the left hand side looks like it might be the old Schaumburg Bank building that also served as Hoffman Estates Realty Co. around this time.

Am I way off the mark?  Do you have a suggestion?  Help me out!

    Hi Jane, I think you are exactly right on this one!

    I think the photo is looking south on Roselle Rd toward Schaumburg Rd. I think the roofline of the house on the right was the home of the Paulishoks or one of their neighbors. As kids we walked up and down that part of the road when we would go to Golden Acres to find lost golf balls then sell them back to the golfers.

      Thank you for your confirmation on this Patrick. I appreciate those childhood memories because an adult may have driven that road countless times and the scene might not have been so indelibly set in their memory as a kid who actually walked the road just as many times.
