Chicago architecture, beautiful down to the smallest details: The Monroe Building’s lovely doorway, photographed by New York journalist Susan Demark.
"There’s a light on, in Chicago, and I know I should be home"
My photos of 7331 N. Sheridan Road, a 95-year old, Prairie-school style home, and one of the last remaining large residences in Chicago’s Rogers Park south of Jarvis Avenue. Col. Jennifer Pritzker-led Tawani Enterprises began demolition on the property, recently the Shambhala Meditation Center, for a proposed 250-space parking garage in a residential area a block from Pritzker’s restored Emil Bach House. Protesters, large in number and very vocal, organized against the “mistake by the lake” for months but lost the support of Ald. Joe Moore and the Zoning Board. A bit ironic that an architectural preservationist like Pritzker would demolish a historic building.
It’s Chicago Day at the Columbian Exposition!, 1893, Chicago.
On this date, chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the Great Fire, the fair would break records with over 715,000 people visiting the grounds in one day.
