Five years after acquiring the property located at 4718 Winthrop Avenue in Chicago, my great grandfather Fred (Emery) Daniels had begun the process to build the Daniels Apartment Hotel. Here are the building permits dated March 18, 1925.
The permit above was found at the University of Chicago archives. The permit below was located at the Chicago Historical society. Both index cards indicate the owner information was missing from the microfilm.
I attempted to obtain the original plans, but according to the city of Chicago, nothing exists prior to 1956.
