Hang On Buddies! 1600 Block Fell Ave., Normal, Sept. 1963

Four boys riding two bikes, 1963

This early September 1963 scene shows four unidentified boys heading south on the 1600 block of Fell Ave. The white house is 1610 Fell Ave., and the house under the boys clasped hands is 1612 Fell Ave. Looming in the distance is the Van Leer Memorial Chime Tower on the Broadview Mansion grounds.
No bike helmets in 1963!
