The sign on this building is partially obscured by construction. It's on Lake Street between Cicero and Central. Anyone know what it is/was? http://www.flickr.com/photos/mercer52/9693988705/

Can anyone tell me more about this building? It's decorated with all kinds of terra cotta--frogs, turtles, octopus, crabs, etc. COC Landmarks website says it was built in the 1920s, Peter J.
