Relief Apartments at the Theater in Sycamore


From the September 26, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"To further relieve the housing shortage within Sycamore, work has begun on the construction of apartments in the State theater building on West State Street.

"The bulk of the studding for the apartments is in place and reports were that  other construction work on the several living quarters will be pushed rapidly to completion.  The apartments in the theater building, it is understood, will be four room affairs, and many inquiries have been made as to when they will be ready for occupancy."
