Blackstone Memorial Library is a building that is part of the Chicago Public Library System and is named after Timothy Blackstone. It is now known as the Chicago Public Library - Blackstone Branch and commonly referred to as Blackstone Library, or Blackstone Branch and sometimes Blackstone for short. The Concord Granite building's two-year construction started in 1902, and it was dedicated on January 8, 1904.[1] Blackstone Library marks the beginning of the Chicago Branch Library System as the first dedicated branch in the system.[2] Blackstone is also the only branch of the 79-branch Chicago Public Library branch system that was constructed using private funding.[1] The building is located in Chicago's Kenwood community area in Cook County, Illinois, United States and serves the Hyde Park, Kenwood, and Oakland community areas. The branch celebrated its 100th anniversary of service in 2004. Located at 4904 South Lake Park Avenue in Chicago. Lithograph. This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. This is from the architect Bruce Price's collection. It measures 12.75 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 15.5 by 11.5 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
