Motor Row remained Chicago's largest concentration of automobile and specialty showrooms until after World War II. A 1933 city guidebook still referred to Michigan Avenue south of 18th Street as “Automobile Row,” noting that lining either side of the street “are the salesrooms of virtually all American and many foreign motor cars.” New construction in Motor Row culminated in 1936 with the opening of the Illinois Automobile Club at 2400 South Michigan.
