The changing face of Milwaukee Street

19Mar12

This graphic takes a snapshot of a city street’s retail scene in 2003 and compares it with an image of the same street captured 30 years earlier — in 1973. Note how women’s clothing stores, shoe stores and jewelry shops — which dominated the street’s retail business in 1973 — have given way to restaurants, trendy bars and night clubs.
