Stadium Theatre March 1937

The Stadium eventually became Evanston I. It was torn down in 2007 to make way for the Eastwood Condominium project. The project has been extended while the developers negotiate the current market downturn.

Central & Green Bay circa 1910. The Chase Bank building replaced the building on the left (south). The building that today houses Maya Papaya is on the right (north). Note the stairs from the sidewalk to the street. They are still there today. Also, there are trolley tracks on Central. A trolley ran on Central from 1897 to 1935. It's cars were called "Dinkys" and "Toonerville Trolleys" by the residents. Since there are no overhead wires the tolley cars were probably horse-drawn. Find out more at: Trainweb
