Then and Now, North Side

For those who missed them the first time around, I’ll be posting some of the pictures from the “Where in Chicago?” quizzes on my previous blog.  Only this time, I’ll immediately include the contemporary views.

    You should have been more specific on the Broadway/Sheridan pix as there are three such intersections.
    This one is at Montrose.

      That’s true, Broadway-Sheridan is one better than Milwaukee-Elston, which only happens twice.

        Except that Elston may be the only street anywhere that starts & ends at the same street.
        But to top all of them, there are four, 1 Wacker Drives, East, West, North & South.
        So Wacker beats them all!
