The Top Three Articles of 2021

Once again the holiday season is approaching and with it, the end of another year. It's time to reveal our top three most popular articles of 2021 and what you, the readers, enjoyed most. 

1    Does a Letter "S" on a Chimney Mean a House is from Sears Roebuck? -- According to the internet, if a house has a metal "S" on the chimney, it means that it was purchased from Sears. Is that true?

2    Old Tyme Sears Modern Homes Advertising, 1930's and 1940's -- Let's examine how Sears Roebuck marketed its houses in the 1930's and 1940's.

3    Old Tyme Sears Modern Homes Advertising, pre-1920 -- Clearly this series was popular! There was a third part to the series that you can read here.

We invite you to join us in 2022 and see even more Sears homes in Chicagoland. Happy Holidays!
