On February 8, I drove to E. Lakeside Street to take a photo of the VFW building where the 2006 All-Central reunion would be held a few days later. Then, I strolled down Lakeside Street, camera in hand, to explore a bit of the neighborhood around Franklin School. Two days later, I posted a few of the photos I took during that stroll, accompanied by some explanatory text. But after those posts about Lakeside Fibers (housed in the former South Side Grocery Market ) and the Washington Island Hotel Coffee Room, other projects muscled their way to the top of my good intentions list and the rest of that stroll was deferred. Now, three months later, I'm revisiting it.
The Microcosm Book Store has been at 306 W. Lakeside Street, across from Franklin School, for more than 35 years. It's owned by astrologer Richard Koepsel.
