Then and Now, Madison-LaSalle

1918–Madison Street @ LaSalle Street, view east

2019–the same location

Another old photo of downtown Chicago.  Once again, vintage autos, at least one horse-drawn wagon, streetcars, solid-looking commercial buildings.  Prominently displayed, a Coca-Cola advertising sign.

A century later.  Newer cars, no horses, a dedicated travel lane for CTA buses, taller buildings (including the 1953 St. Peter’s Catholic Church).  No Coca-Cola sign, but you can probably find a place that sells it nearby.
