Here’s a group of Midcentury townhouses, done in a typical Chicago Moderne style. I’ve found 4 examples around Evanston so far.

801-13 Mulford Street:

143-151 Custer at Brummel, back-to-back with the building on Callan:

1413-23 Main Street, similar in style but definitely the odd man out:

These buildings were presumably part of the post-War construction boom; by 1952, the Callen building was complete and being advertised by The Bills Realty, Inc.
