Where can you find information about Sally's Stage in Chicago?
web research results Sally's Stage was located on the East side of Western Avenue about a half block south of Devon. It probably closed 20 years ago and the site may now be a Middle Eastern or Indian restaurant. It had a huge pipe organ. Accd to http://www.acorntheater.com/prod2011211111.htm, the organist was: "Highly accomplished theater organist, Don Springer, plays music from the 1920's - 40's including those sweet and happy toe-tapping melodies everyone enjoys. He is the former organist in residence at the Hinsdale Theater in Hinsdale IL and played the Barton Theater Pipe Organ for years as the senior organist at the unconventional and wildly popular Sally's Stage in Chicago, IL during the 1980's." Sally's was owned by a guy named Joe Bortz. He purchased the building that housed Sally's Ribs up on Western Ave. and turned it into Sally's Stage. Accd to some "a cathedral of convoluted bad taste bringing together roller skating singing waiters, a huge theatrical pipe organ and some of the most mediocre pan pizza ever tasted, all in one cavernous room." It also had a mechanical bull. Joe also owned and founded the Dr. Jazz Ice Cream parlors on Montrose and in Evanston. Many newspaper articles A ProQuest search of the Chicago Tribune turns up 142 articles and advertiisements. These are the lengthiest articles: Night scene; Sally's Stage serves up its heaping dish of comic corn Larry Kart. Chicago Tribune Jul 17, 1977. p. E8 OPENER; You can find it at Sally's Cheryl Lavin.

F5 More Info From what I KNOW, Sally's Stage opened in 1969, And closed sometime in the late 1980's-Early 1990's. Probably the first years I described, And at one time was an Estee Sleep Shop; Which sold bedding, etc.

Five Stages Five Stages was located in an old Masonic temple at 2451 N. Kedzie. Searching the Chicago Tribune using ProQuest will produce a number of concert lis…tings, and a good general article about the venue appeared on page A12 of the Chicago Tribune, 8 March 1970. In April 1970 the venue was renamed "The Stages" by a new owner.

Answer . The Wieland Dairy and Ice Cream Factory, (in Chicago), was developed by my great grandparents, Jacob and Gottlieben (Gleich) Wieland. They came to the USA in 1889,… bringing along their 7 sons,1 daughter, and Jacob's father. The Wieland Dairy was very successful, as was the Ice Cream Factory, where the "Good Humor" ice cream bar was developed. In the early 1930's the dairy was sold, for $8.5 million to "Borden", hence the name "Wieland/Borden Dairy" on all the bottles, for a period of time, (stipulated in the sale), later becoming just "Borden". The money was divided equally between the the sons and daughter. Two of the sons were against the sale, so they started CJ Wieland & Company Dairy. Not knowing whether this is a genealogy question or a question about the dairy itself, I welcome all to contact me.. My father was eventuallya partner in the C.J Wieland Dairy and the chief chemist developing the formulas for the products. The Dairy was eventually sold to Hawthorn Melody in 1951. I would LOVE any photos anyone has of the dairy such as someone said they had. C.J. Wieland had an ice cream parlor and was regarded as the premium brand in Chicago. The aidry products were sold both in many markets and by home delivery.
Miller's steak house was located on the east side of Western Avenue on the 7200 block just north of Touhy Avenue. Yes, it was on the east side of Western Avenue 7200 block,… but that's south of Touhy Avenue by two blocks. It was between Lunt Avenue and Greenleaf Avenue. It was in operation from at least the early 1960s, don't know how much older, and was still in operation in 1974, don't know how much longer. It's been torn down now. I lived next-door as a kid. They'd prop open the back fire door when the place really got to partying and I'd watch through the crack in the door. They had valet parking only, and they'd pack those cars in. The valets had a tiny shack with a space heater and they'd freeze in there, but they probably got good tips. Why do you ask?
Hello All, My husband has sign that was his father's. He worked for Brinks years ago. It is very heavy and in good condition, a few painted areas are worn but the overall sign… in perfect. It is shaped like a shield. 13 1/4" Wide x 15" Tall. The sign says; BRINK'S INCORPORATED FOUNDED 1859 MONEY AND VALUABLES SAFETY AND DISPATCH on the back of the sign I was able to make out what it said...it's embossed; ART BRONZE MEYER & WENTHE CHICAGO Can anyone tell me anything about this? What it is worth? Who might be interested in purchasing it? Thank you, Diane Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) I don't have too much information. However, the company was last at 7220 W. Wilson in Harwood Heights, Illinois. They were bought out in the mid 80's by Everson Ross in Spring Valley, NY. When they moved from here, most of the custom dies were damaged or lost in transit. Most of the Chicago style badges were lost at this time, and the new owners didn't care. Many of the styles they used were the same as C.H. Hanson Co. Ed Meyer & Wenthe office and factory were located at 24 t0 30 S. Jefferson St. A Loop office was at 108 N. Dearborn st. and on the west side at 28 S. Jefferson St all in Chicago, Il. This information was taken from the front of the 1925 Cataloge. I have an original copy as my husband's father was Herman H. Wenthe a partner with Gustuve Meyer who was a brother of Dominica Meyer Wenthe, my mother-in-law. The cataloge is 216 pages long and noonly were policeman badges made there but streetcar tokens , endless stamped metal objects and Herman Wenthe invented the pocket notary seal. The catalogue is facinating. I hope you can find one somewhere. If I can help you again - let me know I now live in NYS I am glad to have found this web-site. My company, Smith & Warren, acquired Everson Ross in 1999. Everson Ross did acquire Meyer & Wenthe in the 1980's. Many of the dies and tooling were preserved and are still located in our factory in White Plains, NY. Any inquiries with respect to traditional Meyer & Wenthe designs can be directed to us via our web-site at www.smithwarren.com. Lee Galperin Smith & Warren www.smithwarren.com 1-800-532-2343 My January, 2004 answer to the Meyer & Wenthe question was in error. Dominica Meyer was Gustuve Meyer's daughter not his sister. Meyer was the business partner and Wenthe was the engraver. I am the grandson of John Meyer from Meyer & Wenthe. I have the information you need from the very beginning of the company. 4 generations. Please contact me if you would like this information. Barry Hansen
Chicago Portrait Company Chicago Portrait Company was founded in 1893 and located 509 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. Info from visitors: . My photo is marked "The S…tudios of the Chicago Portrait Company. Located on Wabash Ave, Chicago in 1936. There was also a "Chicago Portrait Company" in St Louis, MO in 1919. . I have a portrait of a family member taken in 1927 at the Chicago Portrait Company, 509 South Walbash Avenue Chicago Illinois. The gold plate on the back of portrait says this is an Heirloom portrait then it has the lady's name, and at the bottom it says Gothic Design Patent No 65301. One final note at the bottom, on the back of the portrait it also has E H Baese (art director). . My Uncle Grant reportedly worked for the Chicago Portrait Company in the 1930s. He would travel around the country, taking photographs of people, and mailing the film to the Chicago Portrait Company. The company would mount the photos in large frames and return them to the customers. . Today my mother gave me a portrait of her grand mother and father, Jacob and Kathern Braun, on the back stamped "CATHEDRAL DESIGN Design Patented June 24, 1924 Made and sold by CHICAGO PORTRAIT COMPANY" Looks like it was in a bubble glass frame. Written on the back with a crayon 2/3-2904. . I just located two pictures - one of my grandparents, the other, my father when he was about 3 years old. Both frames have bubble glass and metal-like cathedral frames. No date is on the frames but they say Chicago Portrait Company- frame price $7.90. I believe the date to be in the 1920's somewhere.$7.90 was a big price in the 1920's. I have no other information. . I too have an oval glassed portrait of my grandfather. On the other side is a portrait of an old man holding a sheep. The signature is ?? Carson. This is all I have. My gr.father was born in 1846 and died in 1926.

I have a beautiful waterfall print by W.A. Carson that also has 1924 Chicago Portrait Co. The portrait company got into some legal trouble with the IRS and federal trade commission around that time. They were in the business of enlarging photographs into portraits and misrepresenting them to be handpainted. There was also problems with their contracts and misstating revenue or something like that. Last week on eBay a buck print by W.A. Carson with a cathedral arched frame and convex glass (common for his prints) sold for $61. His original paintings are selling for $1500 and up. . My grandfather always had a picture of himself hanging in his basement & I remember looking at it forever as a child. Now that he has been dead for 16 years, it is mine.

It too is a cathedral design Stamped "June 3d, 1934" . Incorporated in 1893, by Thomas J. Ogara, Thomas J. Durkin, C.M. Stumcke. Address for many years at 590 Wabash, intersection of Wabash and Congress.
Lakeside was a Montgomery Ward & Co. brand name applied to a number of different products over the years, including stoves, bells, guns, tableware and even records. An Illin…ois-published Biennial Report of the Secretary of State, State of Illinois, for fiscal years October 1, 1902 through September 30, 1904, indicate the business office for Lakeside Foundry was at 618 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago, and was valued at a mere $2,500. The listed address became the site of Montgomery Ward's Catalog House in 1907; however, Lakeside Foundry continued to be listed at the same location until at least 1920 (Illinois Certified List of Domestic and Foreign Corporations for the Year 1920). In 1904, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania published a list of new charters of corporations that included a Lakeside Foundry in Erie, PA, accessible to Chicago via rail and water. Erie was a popular area for iron smelters due to the quality of raw material in the region, and the ease of transport to other parts of the country. "LAKESIDE FOUNDRY COMPANY -- Erie, June 29, 1904. Capital, $650,000. For the purpose of the manufacture and sale of all kinds of castings, stoves, ranges, furnaces and heating and cooking appliances and carrying on such other business as pertains thereto." (List of charters of Corporations Enrolled in the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 1901-1903, Alphabetical List of Foreign Corporations) "Foreign" means the headquarters was located outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in this case most likely Chicago, Illinois. While there are no online records supporting this theory, it appears Montgomery Ward & Co. may have acquired Lakeside Foundry (of Chicago) for $2,500, with the intent of building the Catalog House on the property. Optionally, they may have already owned the business and simply relocated it to Erie around 1904. It is also possible the business was originally owned by the more widely recognized Lakeside Foundry of Detroit, Michigan, which manufactured engine castings for Ford Motor Co., but aside from the shared name there appears to be nothing else connecting the two. (There was also a Lakeside Foundry in Racine, Wisconsin; one in Indiana; and one in Canada. None appear related.) Illinois and Pennsylvania records last mentioned Lakeside Foundry in 1920, at which time the foundry building was apparently sold, renamed Lakeside Forge, and used to cast industrial parts of some kind (possibly railroad). Montgomery Ward may have sold this unit because of a national financial panic in 1920. The company lost 10 million dollars that year, and JP Morgan and the First National Bank of New York acquired much of their stock. For this reason, it seems likely the majority of stoves manufactured by Lakeside Foundry of Chicago were made between c. 1904/05 and c. 1920. Montgomery Ward may have continued using the "Lakeside Foundry" name for branding purposes after that date, however. Lakeside stoves manufactured after 1920 were probably made by either Estate Stove Co. or Rymer. Earlier castings, including iron bells dating to the late 19th-century, were most likely made at the foundry's riverside location in Chicago. The original business may have been a bell foundry, as the variety of articles available under the name "Lakeside Foundry of Chicago" in the 19th century is limited. It should also be noted that Montgomery Ward sold stoves, ranges and heating appliances manufactured by other companies for sale under Montgomery Ward brand names such as Windsor, Thorne-Windsor, and Sun, among others. Some of their early 20th-century suppliers included the Estate Stove Co., of Hamilton, OH, (later owned by Whirlpool) and Rymer Manufacturing (later called Dixie Stoves, which eventually became Magic Chef). Rymer, a Tennessee company, was involved in a lawsuit for selling Montgomery Ward a stove identical to one manufactured by a competitor, Anchor Stove & Range. Montgomery Ward also imported unbranded wood/coal-burning stoves from an unknown manufacturer in Taiwan. The first person who answered this question located the following ad printed in the Chicago Tribune on October 7, 1945: Castings Brass-Bronze-Aluminum Sand Cast or Permanent Mold Prompt Service and Delivery Lakeside Foundry Service Co. 39 S. La Salle, Rm 925 Central 8892 This was a relatively small building in a business district (not a factory), possibly used as a base of operations for service and delivery dispatch, assuming it was connected to the aforementioned Lakeside Foundry of Chicago at all.
Chicago Riot of 1968 . Here is what FAQ Farmers have had to say:. The 1968 riot had nothing to do with the killing of Doctor Martin Luther King. That had happened earlier …in the year. Later in the year, Chicago was also the scene of the anti-war "Days of Rage." The '68 Democratic Convention was the site of the riot. Student radicals, led by the Students for a Democratic Society (S.D.S) and Youth International Party ("yippies"), and thousands of other young people came to Chicago to protest the Vietnam War, and the Johnson/Humphrey party leadership which had escaleted it. They wanted to camp overnight in Grant Park, which is closed at 11:00 pm, like all Chicago parks. When they refused to leave, the Chicago police gave them a "helping hand". The next day, as they tried to interrupt the convention, the CPD forcibly put down the demonstrations.The images of violence in the streets, the harsh methods used by the police and mayhem on the convention floor, became symbols of the strife over the Vietnam War. In retrospect, it marked the fault line which still exists between "conservatives" and "liberals" in American politics, and world-view. . In 1968 The Chicago Police Department was far from what it is today. Which is good and bad. In those days it was not uncommon to "duke" an officer to get out of a ticket or have them look the other way. The same went for the victims of the police and police brutality among a new generation. Plain and simple, the police did pretty much what they wanted. Not that it was a bad thing or they were bad men. Some were, some weren't. However at the time Mayor Richard J. Daley was very powerful and influentional among the Police. And it was understood that heads were gonna get cracked before the hippies and protesters even got to Chicago. Mayor Daley wasn't going to let HIS city be the dance floor for protesters or hippies, yippies, etc. The Chicago Police at the time had a history of picking on hippies and blacks. There are many many reports and stories to back room beatings, phonebooking, nightclubbing ect. This was the sign of the times then. I look at it now as good Chicago history. But the riots were premeditated by the police in 1968. The 11pm park closer was their lame excuse to start beating people. No matter what anybody says, if you read all the articles and all the history, the stories you read and hear will tell you that the police were wrong and abused their power that day under Mayor Daley's orders. On the contrary he was the best mayor we ever had. Try reading "The Boss" by Mike Royco for starters. . Police riot? Not hardly. Having some time to kill and hearing about all the goings on, I went down to Lincoln Park one night and to Grant Park (across from the Hilton another night). While by today's standards (not mine) the CPD could be considered a bit heavy-handed, had the crowds simply dispersed as they were ordered to do, there would have not been a "police" riot or any other kind of riot. I feel for the people who had their cars parked between Lincoln Park and Old Town. They were trashed by the crowds running from the park. I also witnessed people hanging out of the Hilton's windows throwing water glasses, pitchers, etc. down on the Police. . There was more than one riot in Chicago in 1968. In April, following the murder of Martin Luther King, riots broke out in black neighborhoods in quite a few cities, including the west side of Chicago. Twenty blocks were burned and nine blacks were killed. Mayor Richard J. Daley, however, thought the police had been too lenient and so he issued his famous order "to shoot to kill any arsonist" and "to shoot to maim anyone looting." At the end of April 1968 there was an antiwar rally in downtown Chicago. At the conclusion, the police ordered the crowd to disperse and when they did not do so fast enough, the police waded into the crowd with their nightsticks beating people. And then there was the 1968 Democratic Convention. That event -- often just called Chicago '68 -- was an entire week of protests in the streets and in the parks of Chicago which more often than not ended with protestors, bystanders, journalists, and photographers beaten by police wielding clubs. Whose riot was it? An official government study team concluded that it was a "police riot." But the word "riot" implies a degree of spontaneity. Given what had happened in Chicago in April 1968 the police actions look quite predictable, not spontaneous acts of violence. To be sure, especially as the week wore on the protestors were increasingly confrontational and combative. Chicago was trying to shut them down and they refused to go quietly.
I don't know the full range of their business, but I do know Albert Pick & Co manufactured better-grade dishware etc. for the hotel and restaurant trade, everything from cups …and saucers to serving dishes and glasses. I also know they were doing business by the early 20th century. A good reference book on collectible hotel dishes might give you dates, as they produced things for establishments all over the place. Answer I have the Haviland Limoge dinnerware set given as a wedding gift to my grandmother by my grandfather in 1913. Alongside the Haviland marks, several pieces display an additional mark; "Albert Pick & Co. Chicago, Ill." in red letters. Apparently Albert Pick was distributing Haviland fine china at that time. Answer The old Albert Pick Co. warehouse is located on the Soth side of Pershing Rd. just East of Western Answer When I was a child in the 1940's my father worked at Albert Pick. My father was a sheet metal worker, now I can't imagine what he did there. Besides dishes, they also provided linens to hotels in the Chicago Loop. My grandmother was a seamstress there. I still have a set of linens she made.

Finding Information on a Chicago Address \n. \nYou can search on the address at\nhttp://www.cookcountyassessor.com/search/search.asp. \n. \nClick on the camera icon for a …picture! \n. \nA complicating factor to consider: it is my understanding that during the time of the pre-1909 numbering systems, the even and odd numbers were not necessarily on the same side of the street as they are now. \n. \nThe design of a "Y" in a circle is Chicago's emblem and represents the "forks" where the Chicago River's main stem joins its North and South Branches, with the circle representing Chicago's early center. \n. \nBefore 1909, the old street address numbering systems were confusing and inconsistent with each of three "divisions" or areas around the Chicago River's "Y" or "forks". \n. \nOn September 1, 1909 the present "Brennan" numbering system replaced the old systems, except for the central business district south of the main river stem, east of the South Branch, and north of 12th Street, where the change to the new system was delayed until April 1, 1911. \n. \nThe Brennan system based the city's street addresses on State Street for all east/west addresses and Madison Street for all north/south addresses. \n. \nBelow is my interpretation of the old numbering system as explained by Gerrit E. Van Wissink, in his "Street Numbering Changes" appendix to the book, Streetwise Chicago, A History of Chicago Street Names by Don Haynor, published in 1988. \n. \nThe area of the city, north of the main stem of the Chicago River from Lake Michigan to the "forks" and east of the north branch of the river to the lakeshore.
