Maxwell Street: Cheat You Fair Aug 13 at the Salvation Army-Norridge 7:30-9:00 PM "Cheat You Fair" was the name of a store on Maxwell Street. According to director Phil Ranstrom, that name expressed "the spirit of bargaining that went on" at the store and in the street market that operated every Sunday until 1994. The first act of the film explores the history of Maxwell Street, which began after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Some of the earliest inhabitants were Jewish settlers who came to America during the turn of the 20th century to escape Antisemitism in eastern Europe and Russia. Those who landed at Maxwell Street began selling products from pushcarts and Maxwell Street began to emerge as a place to shop and find a bargain.
