This is the south side Lakeshore just west of Parklawn in the late 1970's.
It's a frame grab from the New Avengers. Several episodes were filmed here in 1977.The Pickin' Chicken Bar-B-Que.
Barbeque is a French word meaning head to tail (beard to tail)
This condo development replaced the Pickin' Chicken.
Looking east towards Parklawn, you can see how undeveloped this stretch was.
