Great photos, harryc! Looks like a beautiful city that's seen some better days.

I hope you can get out and get some more photos sometime - it's nice to see some Illinois cities other than Chicago represented here.

Any pics of the Starlight Theater? I did the computer model of it for Jeanne Gang's firm, Studio Gang, but haven't yet seen the building in person.

Here's a quick pic of the model:
