East 41st Street and South Peoria Avenue, 1953 vs. 2009
From 41st Street looking east across South Peoria was practically out in the country in 1953. There are a few houses in the distance but not much else. (photo courtesy of the Beryl Ford Collection/Rotary Club of Tulsa, Tulsa City-County Library and Tulsa Historical Society)
By 2009 this is the heart of the Brookside neighborhood and described as mid-town or "close to downtown". Tulsa is now solid residential and light commercial from here South and East all the way to Broken Arrow.
