Photograph of Morris Ave Skyline with Train.

By the late 1880s Morris Avenue was lined with three and four-story brick warehouses from 21st to 25th Streets. 

The Lousiville & Nashville Railroad claimed ownership of the section of Morris Avenue between 14th and 18th Streets, which had been used as a produce market and later for automobile parking. In 1969 the railroad blocked off the area to traffic, erecting makeshift barriers and signs saying "No admittance, private property". Leon Aland of the New Ideal department store led legal efforts to keep the street open to public use.
