EDWARD C. WALLER APARTMENTS (1895 - S.031)
 
Date: Circa 1935

Title: Waller & Francisco Terrace Apartments Circa 1935-40 (1895 - S.030).

Description: Viewed from the Southwest, the Francisco Terrace Apartments are on the left, Waller Apartments (1895 - S.031) on the right. The Francisco Terrace and Waller Apartments were both designed as low income housing in 1895. Although the Francisco Terrace Apartments were designed first, they was constructed after the Waller Apartments. The Francisco Terrace Apartments were built adjacent to and behind the Waller Apartments, and connected on the West side. Many architectural details found in the Waller Apartments are also evident in the Francisco Terrace Apartments. It consisted of forty-four units (possibly forty-five). All apartments faced and were accessed from the inner garden courtyard except those facing the street. Instead of hallways, Wright designed each corner of the courtyard with a tower that enclosed stairs that opened to a wooden gallery which gave access to the second floor units. After nearly eight decades, and years of neglect the Francisco Terrace Apartments were demolished in March, 1974. In 1978, decorative elements were salvaged, including the Sullivanesque terra-cotta arched entrance, and reconstructed on a smaller scale in Oak Park, creating seventeen townhouses. Photographed by Gilman Lane. Etched into the negative, bottom left corner "67365."

Description: Edward C. Waller was an important early Wright patron. He lived in River Forest near Wright's William Winslow house. Waller sold Winslow the property upon which his home was built. Waller commissioned several projects to be designed by Wright: the Francisco Terrace Apartments 1895 (S.030) (since demolished); the Waller Apartment 1895 (S.031); the remodeling of his home in River Forest 1899 (S.047); the Edward C.

Unit #4 (second from left) was demolished in 1968 after a fire gutted the unit. Center entrance is possibly unit #2. The Francisco Terrace Apartments (S.030) were directly behind these units. Clipping pasted to verso: "The two abandoned properties at 2844 and 2848 W. Walnut were slated by the city to be torn down and would have been had a red light not gone off. The row housed in a small corner of East Garfield Park were designed by 1895 by Frank Lloyd Wright, then a 26-year-old, little known architect. Devereux Bowly Jr. wrote in his book The Poorhouse that the two along with six other row houses still standing, are part of Francisco Terrace, ‘the first subsidized housing in Chicago... Classic in the history of low income housing. I like to tell people I bought two Frank Lloyd Wright buildings for $1 apiece.’ said Vince Michaels of the landmark Preservation Council, which bought them under the Chicago Abandoned Property Program and is rehabbing them to sell to low income families for $70,000 to $80,000 each." Caption on verso: "Abandoned row houses at 2844 and 2848 W. Walnut were slated for demolition until it was learned that they were designed in 1895 by Frank Lloyd Wright."

Set of 145 images of the Waller Apartments. Edward C. Waller was an important early Wright patron. He lived in River Forest near Wright's William Winslow house. Waller commissioned several projects to be designed by Wright including the Francisco Terrace Apartments (1895 - S.030) (demolished) and the Waller Apartment (1895 - S.031). The Waller Apartments consisted of five connected buildings, numbered right to left (East to West). Unit 1 on the East end (right) and 5 to the West end (left). Unit 1: 2840 A&B (right) and 2842 A&B (left), Unit 2: 2844 and 2846, Unit 3: 2848 and 2850, Unit 4: 2852 and 2854, Unit 5: 2846 and 2858. The of the five attached apartment buildings each containing four approximately 600-square-foot units. Original plans published in Monograph... indicated that each of the 20 units had a dining room, kitchen, bedroom, parlor and a water closet (toilet). Although some of the units in the Francisco Terrace Apartments, directly behind these apartments, had bath tubs, it does not appear that any of these units had bath tubs. Frank Lloyd Wright’s description for the Francisco Terrace Apartments included "...Water Closet for Each. Public Baths for Men and for Women..." When looking at the plans it begs the question, why only a toilet. Who would live in an apartment without a shower or bath. "In 1893 just three percent of families living in Chicago’s ‘slum districts’ were in housing with bathrooms..." from "Washing ‘the Great Unwashed’ " Marilyn Thornton Williams. In 1894, Chicago built the first public bathhouse on the West Side. According to the Encyclopedia of Chicago,  

between 1894 and 1918, "Chicago built 21 small and utilitarian public bathhouses in poor and immigrant neighborhoods." Chicago was one of the first cities to pass an ordinance that required all apartments to have private bathrooms in each unit. Wallace and Wright were on the forefront. Not only were the Francisco Terrace and Waller Apartments the first subsidized housing in Chicago, each unit had a private water closet. Unit 4 (second from left) was demolished in 1968 after a fire gutted the unit. An article in the Chicago Sun-Times, October 25,1993 indicated that: "The two abandoned properties at 2844 (unit 2) and 2848 (Unit 3) W. Walnut were slated by the city to be torn down and would have been had a red light not gone off. The row houses in a small corner of East Garfield Park were designed by 1895 by FLW, then a 26-year-old, little known architect..." The design of the Waller and Francisco Terrace Apartments were very similar, and design elements used in both. Yellow brick, visible in the renovated unit 1, layout and design of the brick, arched and lintel entryways, decorative terra cotta cornice beading trimming the roof line, window column, decorative terra cotta panel and lintels above the doorways, limestone trim. After Waller death, the Waller Apartments were subdivided and sold as cooperative apartments. This set of 145 images of the Waller Apartments examines the architectural detail of the Wright designed Waller Apartments. Photographed by Douglas M. Steiner October 9, 2018. Copyright 2018.
