Guttman Tannery
Webster Ave. and Dominick St., Chicago
November 1998

I couldn't help noticing this rather blunt notice. There was a second, identical sign at the far door for those who might have missed the first sign. Tanneries used to be quite common along the north branch of the Chicago River during the heyday of the great South Side meatpacking plants. Today, this is the last in existence.
