Epppenstein OfficePatrick Steffes of the website, Forgotten Chicago, sent a heads-up on their newest article, which features one of the least-known modernist architects in Chicago history, James F. Eppenstein. Eppenstein had a relatively brief career from the mid-1930s to the early 1950s, but left behind a remarkable body of work. Forgotten Chicago’s article on Eppenstein covers his remodeling of Hyde Park’s Shoreland Hotel, recently reimagined by Studio Gang; a modest bar at the famed LaSalle Hotel that was the start of one of the worst fires in Chicago history; and the unique Electroliner interurban train which ran from Chicago to Milwaukee until 1963. More information on Eppenstein’s amazing career may be found at the Forgotten Chicago website.
