S.091 Joseph Jacob Walser, Jr., Residence,

42 North Central Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

 

Photographed on August 30, 2009. More than any other property, this is the one that would make you cry. The neighborhood may someday aspire to be a slum. The house shows such disrepair that you have to question what good it does to be designated as a local landmark. Notice the distressed woodwork on the top photo. An alley allows some view of the back of the house and the garage.
