Familiar as I am with the Berghoff as a restaurant, I never really stood back and looked at it as architecture until yesterday. This is indeed a handsome mid-Victorian structure, in surprisingly pristine condition, having somehow escaped not only demolition but the mid-20th-century ground-floor "modernization" which has marred so many buildings of its era. Glad it's still going strong!

As Mario & Brent I agrre that this building is stunning & & I think allows you to look into the late 1800's & picture the buildings & people in their own time.

Even though it was finished a year after the Great Fire, this little building gives you a very good idea of what the rest of Downtown looked like before the Great Fire, and before it was "the Loop."

I like the design of the building and sign so much, that I put it on with my lego Chicago display at my house. It looks so cool with the arched windows and details with the sign.
