CHICAGO (WLS) -- A street on Chicago's Northwest Side got the royal treatment Monday!
A portion of Lincoln Avenue in the heart of the Lincoln Square neighborhood was transformed into a scene straight out of London overnight.
Curious onlookers checked out the scene near Giddings Plaza complete with a double-decker bus, a mock British TV news van and an old-fashioned telephone booth. Even the street signs looked the part!
To complete the look, the Chicago Brauhaus assumed a new identity as "The Tipsy Swallow," billed as "London's original pub established in 1895."
If you aren't able to see the display in person, you might catch it on TV - the makeover was apparently all part of a shoot for the "Empire" series.
According to a posted filming notice, the British invasion ends Monday at midnight.
