Tracing Adler & Sullivan in Bronzeville

Five Adler & Sullivan buildings intermingled with Chicago's Black history on three blocks of South Wabash starting in the early 20th century. Once White flight began in this section of the South Side, new residents repurposed existing structures to meet the needs of the new community. While these Adler & Sullivan designs are forgotten compared to their large commissions, they were no less important to their tenants than, say, an Auditorium Building.
