CreatorVandercook Co.
DescriptionCaption: "[Engraved for The Standard Guide Company.] Suburb of Eggleston--Yale Ave., North from 72d St. [See "Outlying Chicago."]". From text: "One of the most prominent suburbs in close proximity to Chicago; generally mentioned in connection with Auburn Park, another beautiful environ. The accessibility of Eggleston and Auburn Park is well known. Its main transit line is the Rock Island railroad, over which trains run the distance in from twenty to thirty minutes. The convenience afforded suburban travelers on this road are seconded only to that obtained by the patrons of the Illinois Central line... From either depot [Auburn Park or Eggleston], where a star, crescent, and either "Eggleston" or "Auburn Park" is boldly outlined on the sward of the sloping bank, to the remotest corner of that well-kept property, nothing to mar the beauty of the scenery is to be found, and the visitor is led to wonder why capitalists do not lay out other sub-divisions in like manner. The owners of this property, Messrs. Eggleston, Mallette & Brownell, have offices on the second floor of the Tacoma building, and on the sixth floor of the Royal Insurance building."
