The Old Wabash Castle

Yesterday, Greg Loudon came by to do the photo shoot for the cover of my Annihilation Press collection FIENDS BY TORCHLIGHT. I truly wish these ruins were still at Wabash and Cullerton and we could have taken some shots there. This building had been a brewery, and the cornerstones and a partial wall was still standing until the late 1980s. It is now a parking lot for one of the newer buildings that have cropped up here, the street between State & Michigan, and a bit further north, the el runs above it. Thankfully, the new building isn't a condo, but an architecture firm. In the color photo, at the intersection on the right side, was the seediest currency exchange I have ever seen.
