Photograph from the Brown family album. Annotation written by Elizabeth Brown Brooks April 29, 1983.
Inscriptions:
During World War I the third floor of the Brown Building, at 1159 Wilmette Ave., was used by Wilmette's War Camp Community Service. There were dances Saturday nights, music on Sundays. A few of the sailors who had week-end leave would stay and sleep on cots. Often my father, J. M. Brown, went over on Sunday mornings to make coffee and toast for the boys.
