Hollywood star Gloria Swanson started her career at Essanay Studio. There has been much speculation about where Gloria’s family lived in Chicago. Since the census is available now, I thought I would research it myself. Ms. Swanson’s address in the 1900 census record is 885 Seminary. The address became 3124 Seminary after street renumbering in 1909. A condominium stands at the address now.
