Broadway and Ridge, 1939

48th Ward Alderman John Massen measuring sidewalks that will need to be removed and rebuilt in order to widen Ridge from Broadway to Clark. The buildings behind the group still stand, while the side of the intersection they're on now has a Walgreen's. Image currently on eBay: 160744313616

The old sidewalks in Edgewater were made of slate. There's still some pieces of it still around. Walk east of Broadway on the north side of Balmoral, between Burkes Public House and the alley and there are still a couple of slabs.
