A building that has a tower with a cone-shaped roof is visible just above the exact center of this photo. This was the tower on the Lyceum at the corner of Palisade Avenue and Engle Street. Built in 1889, the building housed the Citizens’ National Bank and the city’s first library (with separate ones for men and women, available for a $5 subscription). It still stands, minus the conical roof, housing a PNC Bank and Englewood Wine Merchants.
The building immediately east of the Lyceum, set back a little from Palisade Avenue, is also still standing in 2017. Built in 1914 under the Carnegie Corporation, it was a public library that boasted a collection of over 14,000 books.

This format has met with enormous success. Crime Stoppers in the United States has been responsible for more than half a million arrests and more than $4 billion in recovered property.
