The tiled entryway to this Mexican-American snack shop bears a well-worn name with Eastern European roots. "J" might be "John": The July 1919 issue of the trade journal Western Druggist mentions a John Stuchlik and a W.A. Stuchlik, both of Chicago. A century ago, instead of paletas and fresh-cut tropical fruit, this corner was probably home to a pharmacy, and perhaps a drugstore soda fountain, too.
