Where in Chicago? (#22)

1954 (CTA photo)
How well could you find your way around the Chicago of the past?
This 1954 photo is from Chicago's West Side. It's somewhere west of Ashland, between Armitage and the Sanitary Canal. Despite the passing of nearly 60 years, many of the buildings are still in place today. There are also a few clues to help you identify the site.
If you think you know the location, send in your guess as a comment. I'll post a contemporary photo tomorrow.
