Chicago's ports of entry

The arched entrance of the old Parisian Novelty Co., at 3510 S. Western is one of my favorites. It's just the right height and width, visually. I dig how the letters in "Parisian" rise and fall to fill the arch. We're a city of buildings. Which means lots of opportunities to make a grand entrance.
