Top of the Morning, July 9, 2018

Sunday marked the latest installment in a series that provides a visual treat online.

For the past six months, staff writer PAUL WOOD has been chronicling the history of architectural marvels around the area as part of his "Significant Structures" series, and our staff photographers have matched his words with careful documentation of each one, inside and out.

Thus far, they've looked at Busey's Hall/Princess Theater in downtown Urbana (now home to Cinema Gallery), the Illinois Traction Building in downtown Champaign (now home to Kane & Company salon and Live Action Games), the Burnham Athenaeum on the north side of Champaign's West Side Park (now home to the Meyer Capel law firm), the Upper Room sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church in Champaign, the Stephens Building in downtown Urbana (now home to Wicked Rascal Barbershop) and, most recently, the 122-year-old University of Illinois Observatory on Mathews Avenue.

To the right is the photo gallery included with the latest installment. Each of the previous ones, linked below it, has their own.

Give them a look, and be on the lookout for the next entry in this monthly series.
