This reprint of a 1929 News and Courier (Charleston, S.C.) article depicts MacElwee's plan for the extension of Murray Boulevard north of the Ashley River bridge. The map and text give detailed descriptions of residential lot sizes in the reclaimed areas, areas for commercial development, parks, etc. and persuasive economic reasons to undertake the development. Though most of the land was eventually reclaimed, no grand boulevard extends north of the Ashley River bridge today and MacElwee's vision of building "one of the most famous water front driveways in the world" was never realized.
