I faved Crawford Station Power Plant
by BalineseCat
embiggen by clicking: http://flic.kr/p/hzZrznA view of an Crawford Station, a power plant that opened in South Lawndale in 1925. It was one of the two greatest sources of particulate-forming air pollution in Chicago until it was closed in 2012. Though it is no longer being used, there were quite a few people working on the property when I visited…not sure what they were doing.

I faved Chicago Municipal Sanitarium
by BalineseCat
embiggen by clicking: http://flic.kr/p/f51faxWishful thinking but alas…there was no way to see the inside of the power house/incinerator building :-)

The Chicago Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium was founded in 1915, and located on Chicago’s northwest side. The grounds included a large facility that had a capacity of 950 residents, along with buildings dedicated to all the services needed to keep the facility up and running. The facility closed in 1974, but the majority of the buildings are still intact. The patient housing complex has been renovated and turned into a senior citizens residential facility, and some of the additional buildings have been repurposed by the park district to serve  the adjacent North Park Village Nature Center.
