Where in Chicago? (#13)

1948 (Frank photo/author's collection)
How well could you find your way around the Chicago of the past?
This 1948 photo is from the Northwest Side — north of North Avenue and west of the Chicago River.  Many of the buildings are still around. There are also some other visible clues to the site.
If you think you know the location, send in your guess as a comment. I'll post a contemporary photo Friday.
