What appears to be the S/W corner of Portland and Niagara in 1913.
Niagara Street follows the serpentine path of the old Garrison Creek and is named after the foot path that ran beside the creek as the soldiers marched towards Niagara.

This is the south side Lakeshore just west of Parklawn in the late 1970's.
It's a frame grab from the New Avengers. Several episodes were filmed here in 1977.The Pickin' Chicken Bar-B-Que.
Barbeque is a French word meaning head to tail (beard to tail)
This condo development replaced the Pickin' Chicken.
Looking east towards Parklawn, you can see how undeveloped this stretch was.
