More on Sobieski Street

We're always digging up more information about Sobieski Street, the tiny stretch of road (now part of Seeley Ave) where H.H. Holmes operated a "glass bending factory" that was actually thought to be a body dump (it sure wasn't used for bending glass).

Information on the history of the block is hard to come by, but we've picked up a few bits of info about what it was like as of the 1970s:

- The empty lot now surrounded by a fence once housed a small factory and a junkyard.

- employees at the tool and dye shop (on the spot where the glass bending factory stood) got to go home early the day that Elvis died.


This isn't the sort of info that sheds much light on Holmes or anything, but it's nice to know!
