I don't know if it will be helpful, but the older bartenders (I mean the really old ones, they're all old) at Richard's Bar (on the corner of Grand, Milwaukee, and Halsted) all seem to have grown up in the neighborhood. They have great stories about the area before the Ohio feeder ramp was built. I live in the neighborhood, and there is a fantastic picture in my lobby of Erie Street when it still had a bridge over the river.
I'm going to keep an eye on this thread, because I'd love to see old pictures of the neighborhood as well.
