Beman - The T. B. Blackstone Memorial Library, 1902

Color photograph of this branch of the Chicago Public Library located at 4904 S. Lake Park Avenue, Chicago. This building owes a debt to Beman's Merchant Tailor Building at the World's Columbian Exposition. Today the Library has retained a wealth of original details and is an active neighborhood branch library. Little expense was spared in its creation. Remaining are its beautiful bronze doors, elaborate terrazzo flooring, elegant glass dome, painted murals and many small interior details. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.
