THEN: View of Short Street from near the Walnut Street intersection, looking towards South Street. Short Street ran northwest towards South Street. Just east of the Short-South intersection, Fifth Street intersected South and ran parallel to Fourth Street. Fifth stopped at South Street and did not intersect Walnut Street.

NOW: Looking down what is now Commonwealth Avenue from Walnut Street. Commonwealth runs where Fifth Street would have if it had intersected with Walnut Street in the early 1900s.
