Forgotten Chicago

I read about this fantastic website today... such a fun read and great photos too! The photo above illustrates original signage with the old Chicago telephone numbering system. It's still in place... it's that flower shop on LaSalle, near SUperior Street.... get it? Too bad the city's density demanded we transition to an all numbers system. I wonder how they would have addressed cellphone numbers back-in-the-day... CANUHEARMENOW-5024? hahaha.
