Home sweet home - This photo is from Sandy Williams' book "Images of America - Hinsdale". The home, located at 419 S. Oak St., built in 1912 in the Classical Revival style, originally sat on five acres of land. According to Williams, the photograph was taken about the time Philip R. Clarke, a prominent Chicago banker, purchased the home. "Clarke served tirelessly for charitable and public projects, raising an estimated $2 billion over his lifetime," she wrote.
