Diversey Parkway? 1911????

Ok so I was looking around old maps of Chicago, and came across the 1911 map, and it shows Diversey Parkway as an actual parkway/blvd.
Now I do know that originally, Diversey was suppose to be the final northern section of the grand blvd ring connecting all the parks and blvds of Chicago. (Yes I watched the special on PBS about the Biking the Blvds. lol) but it never was completed because it was too narrow by the time they wanted to finish the blvd, like Logan Square Blvd. So my question is, was it really a parkway with trees and space like Humbolt, Logan, Washington, etc? Or was this just the mapmaker being ahead of his time?
I hope the link works! Its confused me!
