Former Police Station, Chicago, Illinois
from Forgotten Chicago

Deco station from a feature article on Chicago’s disused police stations. 

From the article:

This archetypical example on Foster just east of Damen was abandoned a few years ago for a new station on the “Motel Row” stretch of Lincoln Avenue (on the site of the Spa motel, of course). Formerly home to the 40th District, this station was the namesake of the “Summerdale Scandals” in 1960.
