Purcell & Elmslie designed a number of factory buildings for the International Leather & Belting Corporation, also known as Alexander Brothers. Just today I learned the street address of the one built example in Chicago, which was located at 3223-41 S. Western Boulevard. (This information gleaned from http://digital.lib.umn.edu/IMAGES/refer ... r01761.jpg)
Does anyone know whether this building is still standing? I am very doubtful, because of its location next to the Stevenson.
I appreciate any news.
and the Stevenson. I'm sure I would have noticed such a striking
building. That I did not leads me to believe that it was already gone
at that time.
Not wanting to put total trust in memory I just checked an aerial photo
of the area (www.terraserver-usa.com) and do not see anything that
looks like it. Afraid this beautiful building is long gone.
