Someone walking past a 1896 building sharing elements of Art Nouveau and Edwardian on Milwaukee near Thomas in Noble Square. The building is part of the Society for the Arts.
Some of the city’s most beautiful neighborhood commercial buildings are on Lawrence Avenue in Albany Park. Diverse, charming, and beautiful, these structures nicely represent the community they’re a part of.
The corner buildings featured in this walking tour were constructed during Albany Park’s meteoric rise in the early 20th century, from 1907 to 1930.
