04/17/10 72 W, 1 I - + 5 - 4 South Wilmington Street

Let's go for a fourth posting based on Bledsoe Avenue this morning. While walking the perimeter, we meaning me noticed a second section of Wilmington Street, at street level, versus the elevated section that's over the railroad tracks. From this earlier posting about the southside streets back in the day, we've excerpted a pair of maps from 1945 and 1961. Interesting to see the before and after! Click to enlarge:
