State Street

State Street is the East West Dividing Line for Chicago. On the opposite side of the street, the sign could very well read E 44th st. You can find the intersection on Google street view but none of the buildings from the older photo is still standing.

Where is this?

I'm looking on googlemaps---seems West 44th Street ends before the Dan Ryan x-press way---east of the Dan Ryan - it's called East 44th Street - (State Street is east of the Dan Ryan)---so today this address would not be? I live in Chicago - so any Chicago street historians out there - would love to be enlightened.

Back When Jazz was King

On the South Side of Chicago.
