Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?
Can you make out the guy in the above?
Here, I'll blow him up for you.
There, that's better.
A hooded figure.
A monk perhaps.
Certainly a clue as to this solid building.
Maybe you've seen it.
I didn't notice it until this week.
And I pass the place all the time.
Which is one thing I love about Chicago.
All this hidden stuff.
Hidden in plain sight.
I won't wax nostalgic about the extra care these older buildings show.
No hooded figures above the windows today.
Economics, laziness and I suppose a bit of cowardice.
Who would have the courage to put hooded figures on their buildings today?
Mysterious men who could represent anything.
Whom we could project our fears upon.
Where is this? What building?
If you know there's a 2015 poster in it for you.
Place your guesses below.
