Little Sweden


See the blue and yellow awnings? I was so surprised to find such a significant Swedish area in Chicago. Toy stores, delis, xmas stores.

In Andersenville...

Cool old fashioned Scandinavian wallpaper inside the deli. the woman who runs this deli used to go to see her sister in Toronto. She loved Kensington Market where you could buy live rabbits for dinner. (long outlawed)



Swedish American Museum Centre


Toronto mayor David Miller is in Vanity Fair! This is May's "green issue". He is standing next to Chicago's mayor Daley. These guys represent "green mayors".

Is that a toque or a ski hat Stagg is wearing?

It's a toque...of course!!!! The man has never seen a ski hill.
He would freak without tall city buildings.
