Any pics of Monroe street between Chene and Mcdougal? My Mom wants to know.

I'm fairly confident that Monroe St. does not exist between Chene and McDougall.

It did exist at one time.

Monroe used to be called Croghan and it ran as far east as Elmwood St. prior to the expansion of Elmwood Cemetery. Croghan is shown on this 1884 map:

Here is a 1949 aerial view of Monroe (running from lower left corner to upper right) between Chene (at left) and McDougall (at far right upper corner).

It is interesting to see Dequindre in that picture (although I might have guessed that it existed as a street before it existed as merely a sunken rail line). Just how far south does Dequindre (the street) exist today?

I'm probably wrong but doesn't end in the Davison & 75 area?

Monroe runs from Woodward to I-375 in downtown Detroit. There is still a very short part of Monroe east of McDougall that serves as the entrance to Elmwood Cemetary, but Monroe no longer exists between I-375 and McDougall.

A version of Dequindre ends at Mack; that's as far south as it goes.
