photo 8: showmen's league of america

The grey building on the northwest corner of Randolph & Franklin is home to the Showmen's League of America, founded in 1913. You don't notice the little elephants above the windows at a casual pass and the blue awning for the office is fairly discreet. The biggest tip-off this the Showmen's headquarters is when you see a handlebar-mustachioed strongman in a leopard-skin singlet smoking on the corner. That's not true. I've never seen that.
