Then and Now, 103rd-Yates

1939–103rd Street @ Yates Avenue, view west

2019–the same location

Eighty years ago the area around 103rd-Yates was largely undeveloped.  Trumbull Park (on the left in the photo) had few amenities.  In the distance on 103rd Street, a long viaduct carried traffic over some major railroad freight yards.

In 2019 this part of the South Deering community is filled with postwar ranch homes.  Trumbull Park has many facilities.  And in addition to the rail yards, the 103rd Street viaduct now spans the Bishop Ford Freeway.
