Does anyone out there know of a photograph of the Atlantic Brewery that was on Fullerton Ave. my Grandfather worked there the entire time it was open, 1933 to 1965. I have a picture of him inside the brewery but would love to obtain a photo of the outside. So far all my searching has lead to dead ends. Any help out there? Many thanks!

[b]Have you tried Google street view. If you know the address or aprox you can see a pix if the building is still there.[/b]

You also might try "What Was Where." The Library of Congress also has photo archives from the Daily News from like 1890-1930 online, but the last couple of times I have tried to use it the link was down. The Chicago Historical Society also has extensive photo archives. I don't think the photos are online, but I believe the index is online. Hope this helps.

It's been gone at least since 1980, when they built the Fullerton Court apts.

Was at the SE corner of Fullerton and Ashland.
