This detailed map of the Chicago suburb of Riverside is a revised edition (1996) of the original 1936 base map issued by the Works Progress Administration. It shows the numbering system used for the various lots across the historic neighborhood, originally designed in 1869 by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted.

Though the emphasis of the image is relatively mundane, the gently rolling streets, large vertical lots, and access to the Des Plaines River give the audience an impression of this idyllic commuter community, established as a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
