Then and Now, Ohio-State

The Near North Side was a quiet residential area a century ago, with Ohio Street a narrow thoroughfare that saw little traffic.  But the Tree Studios building was already in place on the northeast corner of State Street.  Further down the block, the still-new Medinah Temple is visible.

In our time, this once-sedate section of the Near North Side has become bustling River North.  High-rises have replaced many of the smaller structures.  The Tree Studios and Medinah Temple buildings remain, though now adapted for other uses.  Ohio Street itself has become a major arterial highway for eastbound traffic.
