Westboro has changed a little in the last 80+ years... I'll be watching the Super Bowl at Whispers tomorrow (as I do most years). Here is Whispers on Richmond Road now, and what the identical location looked like in about 1935 (in a photo I just acquired this week). Amazing!
(You can read more about the history of Whispers itself from a post I made 3 years ago at: http://kitchissippimuseum.blogspot.ca/2015/02/the-evolution-of-whispers-westboros.html)
To enlarge the photos, simply click on them, and a new window will open showing a larger version:
