From the Frommer Walking Guide to Chicago: 'Until 1960, it was a branch of the Eleanor Club. These were respectable dormitories for single working women. In the early days, residents received room plus breakfast and dinner for $6.50 a week. The commodious living conditions included a variety of common spaces, such as homelike parlors and living rooms, a rooftop garden, sleeping porch, sewing room, library and laundry.'
