Public Enemies Set Design on Lincoln Avenue

We originally posted this on May 30, 2008 while Public Enemies was being filmed. Now that the movie is out, we thought we'd bring these images back for a second look. Enjoy!

Yesterday while driving down Lincoln Avenue, we very accidentally (honest!) stumbled upon the set for Johnny Depp's upcoming movie Public Enemies (about John Dillinger). With time to kill, my friend and I parked the car and roamed around the amazingly designed storefronts circa 1925. We definitely geeked out on this one. Here are just a few of our images -- the most Apartment Therapy-eque ones including an appliance store, furniture store, grocery displays, and a newsstand featuring Redbook and Better Homes & Gardens:

Has anyone else run into the set (or Johnny)??
