Clark and Greenleaf, northwest corner

Built: 1894

There aren't many buildings in Rogers Park on Clark built before 1900, but this is one of them. Permit dates this at 1894, and that seems about right. This used to be the Rogers Park Post Office, I believe. You can still see a pressed metal eagle at the top of the tower. The owners filled in the storefronts and covered the tower with aluminum. But still a good building. This would be a great restoration, if anyone was interested.

I had the day off today. Yay Presidents' Day! Took Felix to the Tot Lot at Loyola Park Fieldhouse. Crazy cold in Chicago today.
