  1. Richard Schmidt and Hugh Garden did this remodel & addition in 1906. Haven’t seen it in color. If I could go back in time, this would be one place I would want to go. They had a wine and booze selection to die for. Was demolished in 1919 to make way for Vogelsang’s new 19 story, Blackhawk Hotel, by Holabird and Roche. Unfortunately land lease issues and prohibition got in the way so it never happened and Vogelsang died soon after. Now it’s a multi-story parking lot.
