Memory Lane: Milwaukee Avenue Near Reno At Turn Of Last Century

By Mina Bloom | February 16, 2017 2:25pm

LOGAN SQUARE — For #ThrowbackThursday, here's a photo of the neighborhood from the turn of the last century.

The photograph shows the square directly across the street from what is now Reno Chicago, a restaurant at 2607 N. Milwaukee Ave., looking west toward the site of the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church, which was built in 1906.

Here's what Logan Square Preservation had to say about the photo:

The two-story corner building that here houses a drug store was also home to the local police court in the 1890s. The building stood until 1969 when it was demolished for the extension of the Blue Line through Logan Square to Jefferson Park. 

DNAinfo is partnering with Logan Square Preservation to share its archive of historic photos and material in a "Throwback Thursday" post each week. All photos are the property of Logan Square Preservation unless otherwise indicated.
