More from Montrose and Sheridan, 1936

Detail: I still mourn the loss of this gorgeous terra cotta building; even then, I had no idea of how beautiful it orginally was.

From the IDOT collection.

Thanks for sharing all these great photos. I had already checked out the original site, and could hardly contain my excitement.

That second photo posted in this group appears to be Sheffield and Sheridan. Did you mean to post a third photo of Montrose and Sheridan instead?

Thanks again!
