Great shot, Janice. I can't believe I missed it and I live right across the street. Maybe the spirits are blessing Irving School's new playground.

Thanks for the catch on the directional mix-up, we've corrected that.

Amazing shots. By my reckoning the pots of gold should be in Berwyn and Portage Park ; )
