"Hey UU, I snapped this pic of the Aquitania apartment building at 5000 N Marine (NW corner of Marine & Argyle) this afternoon (Monday 4/11/2016). I like the way the late afternoon sun lights up the the building's ridges and shows off the decorative festoons, plus there's some nice reflection of trees and sky in the windows. I've been told that the the Aquitania was home to silent movie actors while they filmed at Essanay Studios (now St. Augustine College) in the 1300 block of West Argyle."
