Muffler Man Indian. Eye Can See Now - Muffler Man Indian

A very buff giant stands atop the Midwest Eye Clinic at 6254 S. Pulaski Road, Chicago. Is he giving the sign of peace or halting traffic?

Muffler Man Indian. Cigar Store Indian

Most everything has been said about this fellow, but there still wasn't a photo...so I felt compelled to post one!

Eye Care Indian

..from last visit the Indian looks new and updated. If I recall from a previous visit he did not have glasses on. Now he does, and also a new sign stating "Eye Can See Now." His eyes are a bright white -- like something out of the Twilight Zone.

63rd Street Indian

The 63rd Street Indian that is referred to as the Eye Care Indian is actually a tobacco store Indian. It stands atop a tobacco shop that has several other stores connected to it. As a child growing up in the area I recall the banner on his chest advertised "White Owl" cigars. I suppose when tobacco advertising laws changed, the owners decided to get one of the neighboring businesses to pay for the space. The Eye Care center is on Pulaski, next to the tobacco shop. And yes, the chief's "naughty bits" are best viewed looking northeast from approximately the front of Bud's Flowers across 63rd Street.
