This postcard, probably from about 1915, shows the large Techny dairy farm west of Waukegan Road and south of Walters Avenue. There was mostly open space between the farm and the small downtown area of the Village of Shermerville, meaning a few cows no doubt occasionally made their way into Barrenscheen’s Grove, which later became Village Green Park.
