Valmont at Elwood

A friend on a private Facebook group for my high school graduating class unearthed this ad for houses in a neighborhood near where I grew up.

Another friend figured out from the driving directions to the model home that “Valmont at Elwood” was the development we called “the El streets,” because all the street names started with El.

One of my closest friends as a child lived on the El streets, in a house that looked very much like the one in this ad.
