Description

This detailed map of Park Ridge, Illinois, and the surrounding area provides a fascinating snapshot of the suburb about 15 miles northwest of Chicago near the end of the 1920s. Buildings are individually outlined, roads are shown according to their surface composition (further info lower right), and geographic information is transmitted via pictorial elements and contoured topography.

Locations of interest within the image include a Croatian orphanage, St. Mary’s Mission House, several golf courses and country clubs, the Skokie Playfield, and Wauconda Boys Camp.

The map was originally published in 1929 by the United States Geological Survey under the authority of topographic engineer O.H. Nelson.
