Lock and Fuller streets, looking east.
This view, looking east down Fuller (formerly Bridge) street, peers down one of the streets that make up the triangle (Bridge-Archer-Lock) that was the heart of old Bridgeport. The Illinois and Michigan Canal origin was at this end. At the far east end of Bridge street was the Bridgeport school; Saint Bridget church was also near there. To the right of the picture is Lock street. Near it were the Joliet and Chicago railroad depot and the terminal of the Chicago City railway's Archer Road horse car route, as well as the Archer Road bridge and the Union Rolling Mills, which was located across the South Fork. Note that, similar to Eleanor street, industry is found on one side of the street, since the South Fork of the South Branch is nearby.
