Jewish Center Spring Clean Up 1958

                     This photo which is up for sale on Ebay was taken April 29th 1958 at 7001 N Greenview. The attached news clipping from the Sun-times reads "Teen-agers outside Rogers Park Club of Jewish Community Centers prepare for spring-vacation clean up in area. Representing Mayor Daley's clean up drive, Lee Ross gives certificate to Larry Wolfe (arrow) 16, president of North Side Jewish Youth Council." What a quaint scene, can anyone imagine anyone giving out certificates for cleaning up the neighborhood nowadays? We do have the annual spring clean up through the Ward 49 office.
