Valley Project 1971
These photos of Chicago's Tri-Taylor neighborhood were taken by my father as a graduate student. He was participating in the University of Illinois-Chicago's Valley Project, which included a health clinic.

Most of the area photographed here was demolished in the mid-1970's and designated as part of the Illinois Medical District.

My father, who is still alive, but lost to Alzheimer's, never provided much detail about this project. If you know something, please contact me.

Update: Here's a link to a 1996 story about the Valley neighborhood demolition :http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/house-on-the-rocks/Content?oid=892379
