|The Century & Consumers Building at State & Adams, built in 1915.|
This beautiful old terra-cotta-clad building, designed by
Holabird & Roche, is in a badly deteriorated state after
years of neglect. It's such an elegant structure, and i hope
it will be restored someday soon.
The mural that wraps around the second floor, just above
the protective canopy, is entitled "Float" and was created
by Noah MacMillan. It is a fanciful and colorful addition
to the building, but i still hope to see a more permanent
level of TLC given to this old beauty some day soon.

No matter how brutal the cold, at some point the cabin fever and monotony of walking no further than the L or Morse Fresh Market and home again will get to be too much, precipitating the need for a stroll through the 'hood. Here is how Rogers Park looked on this bitterly cold January morning.
|It's been a while since i've found myself in this part of the RP,|
so of course i had to get a picture of the leopard house
(1625 W. Estes) in the snow.

Apologies for the week-long break between posts here on the Photo du Jour. Work-related responsibilities, the distractions of real life, computer issues, and a general feeling of weather-related malaise all descended on me simultaneously. Today i finally ventured out, crossing the border into the northern territory known as Evanston, for a little cinematic solace. But as i write this, yet another round of brutal winter weather has begun, so i'm not making any promises about when i will be posting again.
