Milwaukee Avenue and Waukegan Road as dirt roads around 1900.

Looking north on Milwaukee Avenue and Waukegan Road begins on the right in Niles, Illinois. (c.1900)

Waukegan Road was known as "North Branch Road," which ended at Park Ridge Road, now Touhy Avenue. That is why there is a slight jog just North of Touhy Avenue when getting on to Waukegan Road from Milwaukee Avenue.
The same view today.
