|Plan of Chicago Promotional Campaign (Ashland Avenue), 1916
The Chicago Plan Commission observed that, as was the case on the South Side, there were relatively few continuous north-south streets on the North and West Sides. Among the proposals that were realized around 1930 were the widening of Ashland Avenue and connecting its separated sections from just north of Devon Avenue to 95th Street.
