The Chicago Daily News Building, 56th and Oakley

I grew up in the '60s - '70s across the street from what is now Iroquois Products, at 56th and Oakley. When I was a kid, this three-story red brick industrial building was home to the Chicago Daily News, one of the city's afternoon papers.
As an adult, I have tried to find out what, exactly, went on there. I know the paper's actual headquarters and offices were downtown. And I know that the parking lot on Oakley was generally packed with newspaper delivery trucks.
Was this strictly the Daily News' printing plant?
