My Mother's Family Bakery: Dorianels Bakery
The bakery was right on 51st Street a few blocks north of Sherman Park. My sister Vic went with my folks to scout out my Mom's old neighborhood and see her old church before they dismantled it. Quite the sad story, but that's for another post. Vic supplied this photo (and a few others I'll use later) and was the driving force to getting my mom back to her old stomping grounds. The closest thing I have to an "old neighborhood" is probably Champaign-Urbana. I know how I feel when I'm back on campus, so I can guess how my mom was feeling as they wondered around her old 'hood.
