    Amazing how many of those same little brick bungalows were built all over the place. My aunt and uncle in Norridge lived in a neighborhood where the houses were all just like that. Even from the inside view during the movie (Raisin in the Sun) it was obviously pretty much the same floor plan. You went in the doorway by the driveway, up a few stairs to the house level or down the stairs to the basement.
