July 6, 1928. McCormick Road became a popular thoroughfare for the Chicago’s North Side and the northern suburbs of Evanston and Skokie. With the handsome lighting, it soon became known as McCormick Boulevard. The granite monument for the roadway is at right; beyond it in the background is an excavating machine removing excess spoil from District property for the creation of a bridle path.
