I noticed that the caption under the photo of the sign on the Solo Cup factory explains that the phone number, PO-5-1313 is an old phone number for the company. It's actually the phone number for the police, pre-911. The number for the fire department was FI-7-1313.;) http://forgottenchicago.com/features/chicago-infrastructure/south-shore-bo-spur/

The Bulls used to practice in AGO's gym until they moved to the Multiplex in Deerfield in the early '80s. The gym was demolished in the mid '90s to make way for a fitness center.

About 10 years ago or so, during a rehab of one of the storefronts in the theater building, an original dry cleaners sign from the 30s was exposed. It was eventually covered up by a sign for the internet cafe that occupied the space until demolition.

There are also some ghost signs that have appeared since the demolition of the Nortown Theater in the 6300 block of N. Western. One is for a realtor. I'll try to get a pic of it before they build the condos.
