Barouge Lounge Trade Token, 1203 Wilson Avenue

Back in November, we featured an exterior shot of the Barouge Lounge on Wilson taken during the fifties. See it here: Barouge Lounge.

Reader John Mutch sent us these images of a trade token from the Barouge.

A note from John: "There are many Chicago trade tokens — most of them don't say Chicago on them, but quite a few have a street address. I enjoy being able to find old photos that show the storefronts.  One I am working on right now is from the South Side during WWII: Bill & Jim's Old Bar Inn at 5212 Lake Park Ave. So far no luck in finding a picture."

Can anybody help John out? Drop a note in the comments section.

If you have any Uptown collectibles you'd like to share, send a photo of it to editor(a)compassrose.com along with any details you know about it.
