"Unknown Loop Streets #12"... "Rookery Court..."
Image taken while standing at the center of the block looking towards Adams Street.
The back of the Rookery Building is a very interesting study in architectural history. The Rookery is unique in that is was built during the transition from masonry structures to steel framed structures. This is quite visible on the back south and east sides of the building.
Standing at Adams Street looking south toward the other end of Rookery Ct. Unfortunately the scaffolding has been up for a couple of years (for facade restoration), preventing one from experiencing the sidewalk along the back of the building.
At the corner of Adams and Rookery Ct. A relic from the day's when buildings incorporated the intersections where they sit into the design of the building... Very European indeed...
