Claremont Cottages - when the mass produced becomes a collectible
Still surviving on the 1000 block of South Claremont Avenue is a series of cottages built in the 188o's as a new housing development by Turner & Bond, designed in the Queen Anne style by architect Cicero Hine, a protege of Lakeview High School architect Normand S. Patton. According to research by Landmarks Illinois, from whom we've
stolen borrowed the historic image you see here, the houses were marketed with a 16 page brochure, The Claremont Cottages in Seven Styles.
