The October 23, 1915, issue of The American Contractor said that a two-story building, 75x162 feet, to house a theater, stores, and offices was under construction at 5746-5752 S. Prairie Avenue. It was one of several projects underway by developers Kusel & Harris. Ralph C. Harris was the architect.

Never thought I’d find this. I lived at 57th and Calumet when I was a child and the NRA was my favorite place to go with my Godmother. In fun, she used to call it the national rat alley because it was old.
