Then and Now, Yates-92nd Place

1938–Yates Boulevard @ 92nd Place, view north

2019–the same location

In 1938 the Chicago Park District had plans to extend its system of parkways into the city’s southeast side.  The Depression had already delayed the project, but now this quiet residential street was slated to become Yates Boulevard.

World War II further delayed the extension of the parkway system here.  The plan was eventually abandoned.  Today this is Yates Avenue, a one-way local street.
