That's the upstairs of the building at Chicago and Davis, SW corner (above Cafe Mozart), is it not?

Correct, Jeff! You get to claim the week-long bragging rights. I thought this one might be more of a stumper than it was, as I have lived in Evanston for nearly my entire life and could not pick out this building if you asked me. Any idea what the building used to be? It is only one of a few in Evanston that I can think of that has columns of some sort out front.

I have no idea what is was, but it stands out to me for its columns and that nothing surrounding it is similar.
Jordan Graham April 16, 2012 at 06:27 PM
Agreed. That is why I decided to include it, because there seems to be nothing else like it in Evanston. Hmmmm. I'm going to do some research on this. I'll let you know if I hear anything.
