Home Newsroom 224. “Guess Where Wednesday” & Last Week’s Winner

We’re going back in time for this week’s “Mystery Photo” here at 365Barrington.com. This picture comes straight from the Barrington Area Library’s archive of historic photos. You can’t take a picture like this today because this building is no longer standing. But if you’ve been in Barrington a while, this one will probably be obvious. Can you guess what this is a picture of?

  1. Hi – the photo is the old Jewel corporate office.

    My mom used to work in the Jewel law department in the early ’60s. And I currently live in Jewel Park!
