Ashland Avenue Between Clay Avenue and Whittier Street, South Side, The Greater Ville

After we pass by Farragut School on Ashland Avenue, things start to look a little more rough, with heavy abandonment and dilapidation.

Four-family flats, built together, now sit abandoned in the weeds together.

The short streets which give the north central Greater Ville its character are often filled with vacant lots and overgrowth.

This corner store, which I photographed years ago, still sits empty. It surely once served a streetcar line stop that ran by its doors.

Then the forest takes over, swalling houses whole.

But there are also these two wonderful Italianate houses, well maintained and probably some of the oldest buildings in the area. We then get to the 4200 block of Ashland.
