In 1975 it was Goodwill Industries and Alhelp temporary labor offices on the corner. Photo added.

The building was Skooglund’s Cafeteria, specializing in Swedish food, for many years starting in 1919. By the late 50’s it was Skooglund’s Hotel for Gentlemen.

This Clifton opened in 1911 and closed in 1919. Another Clifton Theatre in Chicago co-existed between 1909 and the start of 1917 at 3522 W. 26th St. close to the Homan Theatre. It was rebranded as the Little Bohemia Theatre briefly in 1917 and was closed. It has been demolished. A picture is in photos.

I always thought that this building used to be a theater. Love the red brick and terra cotta being kept up nicely at age 100!
