Noticed earlier today that the tarp in front of the Pickwick Stable building was down for the first time in well over a year. The 19x19 building at the end of the alley (22 E. Jackson) was actually a horse stable before the 1871 Chicago Fire and is arguably the oldest and smallest structure in the Loop. It is being converted into a coffee shop and the buildings on both sides into student housing with a multistory bridge connected them above the stable. Photo by The Man On Five 4/8/14

The sharp eyed photographers and writers at Chicago Patterns, a blog we love for their attention to the details that make our city’s neighborhoods so great, have put together a great “tour” of the greystones around 43rd and King Drive in Bronzeville.  Click on the photo above and take a few minutes to visually stroll the historic and contemporary images they gathered of one of our favorite clusters of greystones in Chicago.
