Michigan Boulevard Garden Apartments, 54 E. 47th Street, 1951.
Philanthropist Julius Rosenwald donated nearly $3 million toward
the construction of these five-story walkup apartments which opened
in 1929. "The Rosenwald" was home to thousands of middle-class
blacks constrained by segregation to live in the South Side Black
Belt. [M. Mead, Courtesy Chicago Historical Society]
