This is another beautiful suburb of Chicago, with a strong Swedish influence and a Bohemian vibe.
We went to see the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House (of which more later) but were delighted by the doors of houses in the streets around the University.
A few more beautiful doors from this pleasant district of Chicago.
Old Town is one of the oldest (surprise, surprise) neighbourhoods in Chicago. It used to be known as the “Cabbage Patch” as German immigrants in the mid 19th Century were fond of growing vegetables in the marshy ground. There isn’t a well defined area designated as Old Town, but it refers to the streets around St Michael’s. This was one of the few churches which were not consumed by the great fire of 1870.
More doors from Old Town next week.
Wandering through the streets of Cambridge last month, I took lots of photographs of doors. Lots of subject matter available.
