Palatine: Past and Present

Go back in time in Palatine. See what properties around town were way back when, and what they've become today. Be sure to check out the before and after photos.

Taken in the 1930's, this picture shows the west side of Brockway looking north and west from Slade Street.

First National Bank was located on the corner, and next door to the north is a grocery store called National Tea Company. 

Schroeder's Pharmacy was next door to that, and Bockelman & Son Hardware is seen at the far right of this picture. 

Today, and its parking lot take up the space that roughly 80 years ago was occupied by these former downtown Palatine businesses.

This is ON Slade at Bothwell! Not the same view! The First National Bank building still stands. Slade at Bothwell. Facing the railroad tracks. The facade has changed a bit, but it's still there. The current MB bank is on Brockway north of Slade.
