Daniels Apartment Hotel, Chicago Illinois - advertisements Part II

Here are a couple of more advertisements I came across for the Daniels Apartment Hotel. 

Here is a close up of the advertisement from September 1937, one month before my great grandfather Fred Daniels passed away.

Here is the entire page of ads, some of which are quite interesting.

Here is a close up of the  ad from August 1938 almost a year after Fred Daniels had passed away.   At this point I assume the property was no longer owned* by the Daniels family.

Here is the entire page of ads.

*The records for the Cook County Recorder of Deeds online records do not go back much further than a decade or so.   They suggested I contact a title company, but after attempting to obtain an abstract of title for the years that Fred Daniels owned the property, my inquiries were generally ignored. 

It seemed for a moment I was going to get somewhere through Chicago Title, but then was informed by a clerk that they would not do such research. 

Not very customer service friendly, so if you are in the market to buy or sell a home, avoid the big fish out there, specifically Chicago Title.
