Chicago, IL 60623
Welcome to another post office named in honor of someone. Who is Otis Grant Collins? I’m using a life line here. Can anyone tell me who Otis Grant Collins is? What he or she is famous for and or what they did.
As for the building itself, A nice old solid brick building. Unfortunately this one has seen some really hard Chicago winters. Sandstone corners are not match for the abundant amount of salt and debris used on the streets and sidewalks. You will notice several corner stones in this condition in Chicago. Sad but I did my best to get close-ups of what is left.
On another note, it was almost impossible to get a clear un-obstructed photo of this building. At least the day I visited which was a Saturday. Everyone was about and about doing their chores. In larger cities it’s almost a given in order to get good photos to visit both on a Saturday and a Sunday. The Saturday is for getting close-ups and anything that inside the building such as a mural. Leave Sunday for the exterior photos of the building. These are just a few of the things I’ve learned working on this project.
I need to use a life line? Can you help me? Do you know? Would you share it with me if you did know? Please leave your comments below.
