Louis Sullivan Church Burns in Bronzeville

Worse than knocking down a couple of rowhouses is the sight of flames wantonly consuming a historic and thrilling Louis Sullivan church in Chicago. Built originally in 1891 for Chicago's oldest Jewish congregation, it later became the Pilgrim Baptist Church, which claims to be the birthplace of gospel music Now look at it. Lots of sad stories on The Gutter, Bronzeville Online and Lynn Becker's Repeat blog. The first photo comes via The Gutter, the second from Bronzeville Online.
