The land near Roosevelt and Clark led northward to Dearborn Station on Polk St. The primary tenant at Dearborn Station was the Santa Fe Railway. The B&O railroad went to Grand Central station on Harrison Street. This was west of Clark Street. You could see the station from the Eisenhower Expressway until the early 70's when it was razed.

Decaying industrial areas are fun to shoot.

If Mr D's is still there I'll reshoot it. I completely forgot I had this photo when I went looking though old slides and for the life of me could not place the location, but I figured it was on the NW side. I'll have to get to the vicinity in the near future.

Good observation! I also noticed that in my photo, the glassed wall on the Narragnsett side is a bit longer and the facade above the window areas is a little taller too and is missing the detail near the cornice that is on the Belmont photo.

Guys, look at the photo Artista provided as of 2010. It's at Belmont and Narragansett. The street sign even says Belmont.

Thanks Artista. I had a feeling it was in that area. If I zoom into the street sign, I can see a fairly long name like Narragansett, but it's not too clear. I suppose if it were still Mr Dee's we'd see a lot more photos of it on Flickr, etc.

The CTA connection would be this: It was an electrical substation for the electric trolley buses that ran down Narraganset Ave from the early 1930's till the early 1950's when they were replaced by motor buses.

Hi all. I shot this photograph about 20 years ago. I seem to think it was the intersection of North Ave and OakPark Ave, but I'm wrong as I was just past that intersection on Sunday. For the life of me I can't remember where it is (was). If I do a search for Mr D's I am pointed into the direction of a hot dog /beef stand on Diversey. Anyone know?
