Gapers Block

The Historic Chicago Bungalow Association got some press in the Washington Post this week, with various Chicagoans talking about how and why they ended up in the Bungalow Belt. If you own one of these classic houses, you might be interested in the Bungalow Association's free seminars on researching the history of your home: there is a meeting tonight and one on Tuesday, the 7th. Or, if you just like old pictures, WTTW has a slide show here.
