|The predecessor to the Diag is labeled “Michigan State University;” State Street was called University Avenue.|
|Beakes St. was previously called Pontiac, and it's apparent that the roads north of the river have changed a bit.|
|We had a “Bowery Street,” now Lawrence.|
This map was made two years after Ann Arbor was chartered as a city.
This was the first time I'd heard of the Making of Ann Arbor project, which sounds awesome:
The Making of Ann Arbor is a public website on the history and development of the Ann Arbor Community, created in collaboration with the Ann Arbor District Library, the Bentley Historical Library, and the University of Michigan's Digital Library Production Services.This map is part of their collection of 19th- and early 20th-century photos and maps of the city. I'll be digging into their site much more in the coming weeks.
Oh, and while researching this I found AADL’s list of lost Ann Arbor street names, which is derived from this 2002 Ann Arbor Observer piece. Very cool! It doesn’t appear to be comprehensive, though; in particular I don't see State St. (on this map, University Ave.) on that list.
