Belle Shore Apartment Hotel, Historic Egytpian Revival Chicago Building

I just missed the El at the Bryn Mawr station and started looking for something interesting to fill the ten minutes or so. I looked down Bryn Mawr towards Winthrop and my eye was grabbed by the sight of a vintage building clad in green tile. A short trip down the street put me in front of the Belle Shore Apt. Hotel.

This Egyptian themed structure was built in 1929 by Max Malter who named it for his wife. It is covered in green and tan terra cotta and has been designated Chicago Historic building.

If you like the Egyptpian look there is another building on Chicago's north side the Rebbie Moving &Storage building.
