Belltower: Chicago — Frank Lloyd Wright’s hometown

By From page A4 | June 17, 2013

Never having been to Chicago we decided to include it in our vacation plans this spring. It was actually a two-part excursion. First we rented a car to drive to Rockford, Ill., an excursion that will be discussed in a later column. But before we took off for Rockford we were due to go on a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright homes. We missed the tour by going to the wrong Wright house. Totally our mistake, plus a rental Garmin that was giving us fits because it wasn’t charging in the rental car’s plug and was sinking slowly.
