WWII brought much growth and development to Arlington.
But as one can see from this photo of the interchange of Arlington Boulevard. with Washington Boulevard, c. 1950, much of Arlington was still quite undeveloped several years after the War was over.
Trivia Note: Generally, only Boulevards, Drives, Highways and Roads cross the county in unbroken continuity (“streets,” whether numbered or named, rarely do). Arlington Boulevard is such a road and is the dividing line between North and South Arlington.
