Eight Forty-Eight

Taxidermy thrives on city's North Side

(WBEZ/Tony Sarabia)

WBEZ's Tony Sarabia introduced Eight Forty-Eight to some furry creatures that were past their prime, so to speak. Taxidermic creatures are at the core of perhaps one of the strangest shops in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on the city’s far North Side.

Sarabia shared an audio postcard of Woolly Mammoth Antiques, Oddities and Resale.
