This pink colored building was once part of the famous Edgewater Beach Hotel complex. The main part of the original hotel was demolished back in the sixties after losing business due to the extension of Lake Shore Drive. This remaining complex is registered as part of the Bryn Mawr Historic District.

I must have past this old TV repair shop a billion times and only recently did I have a chance to photograph it. It’s located in the sleepy Edgebrook neighborhood, far up north in the city (intersections of Devon, Central and Caldwell Avenues). I remember when every neighborhood had one of these. Times have changed.

Nothing is more iconic than Schwinn bicycles are to Chicago. My dad worked at the original factory on Kostner Ave. for over thirty years. It’s great to see people still finding these old bikes and fixing them up. They were very well built. It’s a fixture around Logan Square that’s for sure.
