During the summer of 1959, across the street from the railroad tracks and loading docks, residents of 1920 S. Sangamon posed for a photograph. Guadalupe Lopez and her four children: Ben, Lupe, Melecio and Sal appear to be enjoying a nice day in their yard.
Daughter, Lupe Castro points out, “Yes, that’s me, a girl dressed in boy's clothes.”
We think Lupe and Melecio sure rocked those suspenders and sweet smiles.
Brother Melecio Jaime Lopez passed in 1998 at the age of 41.
