|7614-7616 N. Eastlake Terrace|
Anyway, this is a handsome brick and terra cotta apartment building nearly as far north as you can get before crossing over into Evanston. The location is described as suburban, and I suppose it was in 1917 (or 1922). Now this block of Eastlake is dense with small and large apartments. Of course it still has spectacular proximity to the lake and to transit, as noted below:
And what is birch mahogany? Is that birch stained to resemble dark mahogany? Can you really call that mahogany? And don't forget the convenient trash shoots. These worked just fine in 3-story buildings. Less so in anything higher than that.
This building is surprisingly intact. It lost some ornament above the gable parapet, but it still has the tile mansard roof and the copper ornament above the entrance. The windows are long gone, which is not unusual. The historic image is dark, but I'm pretty sure the building has the original wood door and sidelights.
