Neighborhood History: Ridge before & after

Ever wonder how our quaint Clark & Ridge intersection got to be the way it is today?

Arguably not one of our neighborhood’s finest moments in urban design & planning… we came across this fascinating animated gif of the Hollywood extension of Lake Shore Drive into the neighborhood sometime between 1952 & 1962. It is like a gigantic snow plow drove right through Magnolia Glen. We thought it might be interesting to some of our neighborhood history buffs.

We’re always on the lookout for historical images of the neighborhood. If you find any cool old photos in your attic that might be fun to share with the neighbors, send ’em in!
