In a 1903 map, an area near Fullerton and Damen was shown labeled "Holstein", and the streets within it had these names, all were changed, as shown in a 1923 Street Directory:
Hamburg (2127N) --- also named "Bremen" on an 1886 map.
Frankfort (2104N) changed in 1918
Also, on the 1903 map, streets Breslau and Leipzic; short block long streets between Hamburg and Elm; and on an 1886 map an "Holstein Park" is shown centered on Oakley, between Breslau and Leipzic.
