Wilson Avenue, Between Ravenswood and Hermitage
This stretch has changed a lot. The cameraman is standing at Ravenswood, looking east down Wilson Avenue towards Hermitage. The building at right once housed the Zephyr Cafe, which closed in 2006 after 30 years of business. This image is courtesy John Chuckman; circa 1910.
