From the Valley Project of the Tri-Taylor neighborhood, 1971, Chicago. Leo Fourcher
WBEZ’s Lee Bey did a story a couple of years ago about the project. There is a link in the article to more photos.
My dad’s work. (p.s. it’s “Lou”, not “Leo”).
Miss him so much.
The Plaza Hotel at North and Clark, 1907, Chicago.
And now it’s the Latin School of Chicago.
Theodore Fourcher was one of the most remarkable members of our family. He had a traveling vaudeville act, “The St. Onge Brothers” that apparently went around the world. Here’s a couple of scans of photos I have. Click to enlarge them.
This is my great-great uncle, Theo Fourcher. I have a photo of him and his wife, and in all of his pictures, he just exudes love of live. I aspire to be like him.
“Prof. Fourcher.” Byron Company, 1900.
Also my 2000th post, according to my dashboard. Time flies when you’re having fun!

On Reddit, frackyou writes, “So my little cousin posted on Facebook that he was bored and gave everyone his new phone number.” This is pretty much the best ever.
5 years ago, I made a bet. Two bets, actually.
The first was with myself. I bet myself that if I devoted serious time to it, I could become a great technology blogger. It wasn’t an easy bet to make. I knew it would require upending my life at the time. And it did.
The second bet was related to the first. I knew that to become a key tech blogger, I would need a focus. As a relatively new Mac user myself, I decided that focus would be Apple. Yes, I was coming later to the party than some, but Apple was still a company at the time that was scoffed at by many. But drawing from my own experience, I truly felt that the company was on the cusp of changing the world. Again.
you done it again caldy!!
