I went for a walk today to find the Boston Store. Funny thing is the Boston Store hasn’t existed in Chicago since 1948, put out of business by not keeping up with the times. A competitor had a grand return to State Street years ago and is occupying the former residence of the Boston Store. But the Boston Store refuses to be forgotten even 65 years later. If you walk on the north side of Washington Street about halfway between Dearborn and State streets and look south, and more importantly up, you’ll see the store saying “Hello” from the past. It’s nice to see these remnants of city history still hanging on despite time, weather, and city construction projects. It helps us retain a physical reminder of our past.
