roadside amusement

Roadside attractions are a dying breed but this one is thankfully well-kept, in fact the Village of Niles embraces it. Formerly part of a recreation park for employees of the Ilg Hot Air Electric Ventilating Company of Chicago. It is a 1/2 scale replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Niles sister city.
