Every Picture Tells a Story 8/14/14

According to the excellent Cinema Treasures website: "This small, early theater opened in 1912 on Cicero Avenue near Dakin Street, in the Six Corners commercial district of the Portage Park neighborhood. The Grayland Theatre was closed in 1928. Today, the building houses a retail business." Said "retail business" is Rasenick's, a men's clothing store that appears to specialize in workwear (the Dickies logo is prominently displayed just above the window).

What a great piece of Chicago's past. I love that such architectural treasures still stand in our fair city, even if most citizens don't know the history of them.
