Celebrating 18 Years as Barrington’s Signature Magazine

May / June 2022 Issue

About This Issue

Pure Prairie League! Peter Yankala is well-known for Phillips Men’s Wear, a store he has owned since 1974—a stunning 48 years of service to Barringtonians. Now dressing the 4th-generation progeny of his earliest customers, Yankala also passionately pursues avocations including photography, architecture, and travel. A specialist on the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, Yankala introduces us in this issue to a little-known lakeside hideaway built by Wright and owned by former long-time residents of Barrington Hills. Step back in time and enjoy the view with our cover feature story. Photography by Linda M. Barrett.
