This photo from the late 1950s shows clearly the large open meadow that would become the site of the Northbrook Meadows Shopping Center in 1959. The Village Presbyterian Church, built in 1949, is near the center of the photo, and the Northbrook Shopping Plaza, which opened in 1954, is at the right. Note that there is no sign yet of Cherry Lane or an underpass.
