TitleNew South Water Street
DescriptionCaption: "A typical scene of new South Water Street from State to Market Streets to be carried through along the river bank to connect with the upper and lower levels of Michigan Avenue." From text: "Consider how the improvement proposed will bring South Water Street into its destiny, not as a fruit market, but as a modern, high-class business thoroughfare. On the upper level the new street will terminate upon the fine, broad plaza at the south end of the new Michigan Avenue bridge."
