The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
I recently went on-line to see if there is a photo showing what the Scott Radio Laboratories building at 4450 Ravenswood Avenue in Chicago looks like today. No image was posted although but it was described as having been built in 1895 and that it has annual property taxes of $61,233. Does someone have a recent photo or photos of it that could be posted here? What is it currently being used for?
Has anyone ever determined the address of E. H. Scott’s Chicago home? (It might appear in his old correspondence or in a Chicago city directory.) A photo of the roof, showing his two antennas appears in The Scott News Vol. 11 No. 6. Again, if someone has already located and photographed it, could the images be posted here?
My favorite issue of The Scott News is the one from November 1936, which has Paul W. Dilg’s logs from a week’s worth of monitoring with his AW-23. In his cover letter to EHS, he gives his address as 2715 Harrison Street in Evanston, Illinois. I checked this address on-line and there is a photo of Dilg’s house:
I am fascinated with historical buildings from the past that still survive today.
