|East on W. 103rd Street from S. Longwood Drive, 1908
This 1908 photograph of the home of real estate dealer Robert C. Givins on S. Longwood Drive -- running near a glacial ridge that measures the highest point in Chicago -- reveals the spacious residences and tree-lined streets that made the community of Beverly a desirable location for Chicagoans seeking a suburban setting within city boundaries.
