However, many of you have commented about chain stores taking over and that you would rather shop small. Here’s some of the favorite small businesses on Southport Avenue in Chicago. Which one is your favorite(s)?

Southport’s Music Box in 1929

#TBT  @musicboxchicago
・・・
After a long circuitous internet journey that started with the great Chicago ephemera blog Calumet 412, and ended with Ebay (ok it wasn’t that long of a journey), we are now the proud owners of this original 1929 photo of The Music Box. Originally a page found in a sheet metal manufacturer catalogue (who worked on our marquee and others in Chicago at the time) you can now come visit it in our lounge. A lot has changed and a lot has remained the same! #musicboxtheatre #1929 #talkies @cinematreasures #chitecture (at Music Box Theatre)

Music Box Theatre

The Music Box Theatre opened on August 22, 1929, a time when the movie palaces in downtown Chicago each had seating capacities of around 3,000 people. The Music Box, which sat 800, was considered an elaborate little brother to those theatres.

The architectural style is an eclectic mélange of Italian and Spanish, the style is called Eclecticism. (at Music Box Theatre)
