I wish I had my camera

I was downtown Sunday afternoon. Wabash Avenue, underneath the El tracks, was lined with old timey-time 1930s cars. They were all for the Johnny Depp flick Public Enemies, filming a scene on Washington Street. Background folk loitering in sharp fedoras and coats against the tapestry of a downtown street locked into a decade of yore. It's a treat to descend an El platform into another time. (Like I said, wish I had my camera.)
