    Do we know what street that's on? I'd love to see if there are any remaining remnants from this time. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - " target="_blank" title="http://www.flickr.com/groups/chicagolandarchitecture/pool/with/6321403150/">">http://www.flickr.com/groups/chicagolandarchitecture/pool/with/6321403150/">I saw this Spectacular Photo in: Chicagoland Architecture, Engineering and Art!

    Ahhh... okay... 15th and Wabash (from the wiki link above). South of Roosevelt, huh? hmmm... I'll have to wander around down there and see what I can find. Google says there's just a park there now called, "Coliseum Park."

    Ematu: According to the Chicago Park District website, the park was named in honor of the coliseum that had existed on a part of the site at East 14th and South Wabash Avenues. If you get over there, let us know if you find any remnants from the time.
