Chicago's vintage neighborhood apartment buildings along West Fullerton Avenue.

I took this photo one hot afternoon in June of 2007. We are looking west along West Fullerton Avenue, just west of the intersection of North Milwaukee Avenue. These stone front apartment buildings from decades past, are still standing and looking almost like the castles in Europe.

This is a timeless scene of neighborhood architectural pride. Many of the construction contractors in Chicago during the late 1800's and early 1900's were European Immigrants, who brought their Victorian European style of building architecture with them. Many stand today.
