Located a block apart, Indiana Avenue and Michigan Avenue have long been paired. Michigan was a Park District boulevard, while Indiana carried commercial traffic, including a streetcar line. At this location, instead of plain old 33rd Street, we have 33rd Boulevard—a Park District thoroughfare linking Michigan with South Park Way (King Drive).
Today Indiana and Michigan Avenues continued to be paired, as complementary one-way streets. Meanwhile, most of the buildings in the older photo have been replaced by components of the expanding Illinois Institute of Technology campus.
