Palatine: Past and Present Palatine: Past and Present

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.
