In the entryway of the vacant building at 1725 W. Chicago Avenue in West Town is a terrazzo floor with a beautiful design for the business that used to be housed there. I just noticed this earlier this week after passing by it nearly a dozen times.
Joe Barabas started a men’s furnishing company here sometime in the mid-to-late 1920’s. The style screams art deco and I can’t hum “Puttin’ on the Ritz” every time I look at it. I hope another business eventually moves into this building and keeps the floor. It’s been vacant for more than 5 years. You can find more photos on Flickr (without the gate) from attorney and frequent Chicago photographer Mark Susina.
I wonder if the business survived the Great Depression.
