827 W. Wilson, Now & Then

As you might have guessed, the large vacant lot on the south side of Wilson just west of Clarendon wasn't always vacant.
Back in the late 1960s and early '70s this location was still home to the "The Clarendon Beach." If any long-time Uptown residents remember this building or what lead to its demise, please share in the comments.
