Former Mulford Street Metra Station Stairs
This is one of many Metra ‘ghost stations’ along the Purple Line.
Clark Manor's Ambulance Alley
Clark Manor Convalescent Center is the full name…
“Be Yourself” — Behind Berhanu’s Beauty Salon and Hahn Liquors.
The back of a former service station and warehouse near the Red Line’s Loyola stop. You’ve probably seen this stack!
All is calm after its neighbor is demolished.
Next to a demolished neighbor, near the Loyola University Post Office.

The original Tinkertoy factory.
The alley caught my eye because of the unique block glass windows on an old factory, which I later learned was the original Tinker Toy workshop!
"What is Right?"
Behind the Chicago Fine Arts Building, which houses two of the oldest extant theatres in Chicago.
Behind the Merle Raskin Theatre
Behind the Merle Raskin Theatre are some silk flowers headed to the dump.
Behind the Auditorium Theater
The Auditorium Theater seats 4,000 and was once the tallest building in Chicago.
Between the circa-1911 Artcraft Building in Printer’s Row and an electrical substation.
Behind the Pope Building.
The Pope Building was built in 1904 and stands at 140 feet (Emporis). While the area was a center for printers from the 1880s through the 1970s, since then most of the buildings have been turned into lofts.
Behind the old Evanston telephone exchange.
A descriptive notation behind an overlooked art deco telephone exchange. Built in 1929 for Bell, it was one of many buildings set up for operators to physically connect lines between telephone users. The building seems to be used by AT&T as a server hub, judging from the air handling.
Evanston's Tag Gallery
Evanston is a fine place to live, but it can be way too clean (read: uninspiring) for my eye. This is the exception, found behind a creperie and crossfit studio (because of course).
The Green Mill Meets The Uptown Theater
Stuck in the 1930s, between the biggest theater in the county–abandoned–and a historic jazz bar.
