S.016 – Thomas Gale Residence, 1027 Chicago Avenue, Oak Park, Illinois

 

Photographed on August 30, 2009 and August 1991 (bottom of page).  This is one of three houses on Chicago Avenue, just a half block west of the FLW Home & Studio.  Looking at their porches, they are lined up left-to-right (or west to east) as follows: R.P. Parker Residence at 1019 Chicago Ave. (S.017), a non-FLW property at 1023 Chicago Ave., this house at #1027, and the Walter Gale Residence at 1031 Chicago Ave. (S.020). 

 

Some publications had the wrong order, designating the houses respectively as Thomas Gale, Parker, and Walter Gale.  Prof. Storrer’s third edition of his catalog rectifies this error.

I surmise that the garage is not original
