John Dickson, a former West Ridge resident, states that his boyhood home was at 2054 W. Pratt Boulevard. It was a big red brick house with white pillars across from the Edgewater Golf Club. His family employed a maid, chauffeur, and gardener. Then, because of financial losses in 1922, his family became so poor that they moved to Glencoe, Illinois.
