Crown Propeller Lounge, 868 E. 63rd
A strange name for this very popular club which lasted from the early 40s until the early 60s - looks shuttered in this mid-60s photo. The club was run by Norm Schlossberg, who operated a few other clubs in the city as well as a nationwide talent booking agency. He was also mentioned in Chicago Crime Commission reports a few times.
The site now holds a CTA substation.
LaVern Baker played an extended engagement here as 'Little Miss Sharecropper' in 1951.
