Though Cicero Avenue is a major North-South thoroughfare, the name Cicero conjures up all sorts of images of the Chicago mob’s sordid past. This takes us to the town of Cicero, just southwest of the city, and a major hub for Al Capone. Here he kept an incognito ‘crash pad’ for late night parties. Though meant to blend in with its surroundings, the building couldn’t help but stand out. You could say the same of mobster style, always sharp but edgy, at once intriguing and intimidating. This frame echoes that feeling… minus the federal crime.
