The Best Photos Around Chicago This Week

We take a look back at this past week through reader-submitted photos

Welcome to Curbed Chicago’s Friday Photo Flashback, a segment in which we highlight reader photos of the Windy City’s urban fabric. For a chance to have your photos featured, be sure to share them in the Curbed Chicago Flickr pool!

↑ Photographer Erik Wolf frames up Frank Lloyd Wright’s Nathan G. Moore House in Oak Park. The home was originally built in 1895, but a fire in the early 1920s allowed Wright to completely rework the home.

↑ The old Cook County Hospital was once a grand building but has been left in a neglected state since it was closed in 2002. However, an ambitious redevelopment plan will see that the 100 year old building is transformed in retail, offices, and residences.

↑ Here’s a gorgeous home in the Old Irving Park area that goes way back. According to photog Brule Laker, this home was built sometime between 1856 and 1863.

↑ When it come to grilling out for the holiday weekend this group doesn’t mess around, as this photo from Irina Hynes suggests.

↑ The Chicago area has had some nice (but hot) weather lately. This photo from Renee Rendler-Kaplan shows a volunteer working in one of the community gardens in Evanston.
