A Towering Mystery
The fact that there's a transmission tower in the photo – and one very close to the road at that – really convinces me that the farm in the photo is not located at Oberlin Avenue and Meister. There just aren't any towers in that area.
Besides, those towers tend to stay in the same place once they're constructed. They just don't disappear or suddenly get relocated.
What do I think? I think the tower in the vintage photo is still around – and either at the intersection of Oberlin and Tower Boulevard or Leavitt Road and Tower Boulevard.
Here's a look at each. Below is the intersection of Oberlin and Tower.
And here is the one at Leavitt Road and Tower (below).
