Did you know… The population of Park Ridge more than tripled between 1920 and 1930, growing from 3,383 to 10,417? True story!
The featured photo was taken prior to such, circa 1910, and showcases metalsmiths, jewelers, designers and crafts workers seated in front of the Kalo Arts Crafts Community House in Park Ridge, IL. Park Ridge was the home of the manufacturing facilities for the Kalo Shop and the School of the Kalo Workshop from c. 1907-1914.
