Porch detail Designed as a "model home" and published in Tabor's Modern Homes in 1891, this Queen Anne-style house was built for Irving Park land developer Charles N. Loucks. It is a fine example of "pattern book architecture," which were building designs sold through the mail. This was a popular method used to keep pace with housing demands in the rapidly-growing railroad suburbs of the time. The house is noteworthy for its colored beveled-glass windows, verandah with beaded spindle-work, applied metal ornament and distinctive turret.
