once called The Boulevard, now a park

While on the Library of Congress Web site not that long ago, I came across this breathtaking photo, vignetted in the corners and simply referred to in the catalog as Ann Arbor, View from Boulevard. “I want to use this!” I thought, “It would be a great image for the series.” There was only one problem: Where in the heck was the Boulevard? It turns out that the Boulevard is known to us in this day in age better as Cedar Bend Drive. In Cheever’s words: “This, in the main, is Cedar Bend Avenue, now called the Boulevard...The Boulevard proper, extending from the north river road to Broadway, is only about three-quarters of a mile in length, and it seems rather pretentious to call it a Boulevard, still it makes up in beauty for what it lacks in extent.”
