Pic of the Day
1835 Pic from top of hill
This photograph of Pullman was taken by Henry Koopman (Roselands first photographer) in the summer of 1885. The view is probably from Van der sijde's store located on 111th and Michigan Ave. The trees planted on 111th st. mark the western boundry of the Pullman lands. In the foreground are tilled fields. The tree line ends at what will soon become Indiana Avenue. To the right (south) will be Palmer Park. To the left will become Pullman Tech (Mendel). The previous photo shows the scene at street view 17 years later. Look at how big the trees grew. Photo compliments of Paul Petraitis
