Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Midtown Oklahoma City: Photo 2
Here's the much more developed north side. Remember that the city began in Section 33, in the middle of the bottom of the township. By 1907, shown here, the city had expanded north--can we use the word "sprawled" yet?--to fill most of Sections 28 and Section 29, plus many other quarters. A decade later, the state capital would be built at the center of Section 27, shown here as still held by homesteaders. (In 1907 this was still Oklahoma Territory, capital Guthrie, 30 miles north.) The pictures that follow come almost entirely from sections 28 and 29, bordered on the south by 10th Street and on the north by 23rd. You should know that the city's geographical expansion was more than matched by population growth. The 1890s had been slow: the city's population actually fell by 25 percent during that decade. The population in the decade after 1900, however, rose over 600%, from 10,000 in 1900 to 64,000 in 1910. It was a boom decade for real-estate developers.
