Video Production by McLaren Photographic - Part 2 – The history of the Brainerd Community Center. Taking a tour around the Brainerd building complex, we learn about the history of Brainerd and demographics of the Libertyville Township area. With some old photographs, we can better understand the historical significance and personal connection the building has with the community. An old photo of a freshman class shows a very young Oscar Winner Marlon Brando who 9 years later would perform on Broadway in A Streetcar Named Desire. Ike Reilly’s song “Suffer for the Trust” is featured.
This is the 2nd of 12 videos about saving the Brainerd buildings in Libertyville, Lake County Illinois.
