CU Wilson Rates

The Wilson Club Hotel for Men has been a Chicago Uptown landmark for generations, but for all the wrong reasons. I never got into the hotel with my camera. However, Googling the hotel’s name will bring up many descriptions of the rooms inside. This shot from the El was taken on a sunny day in the mid-1970s. It’s hard to see into the shadows, so I’ve enlarged a segment of the image and adjusted the contrast as best I could. The sign says, “Daily Rates – 75 cents to $1.00.”
