The north and south base line division is N. First St., the Milwaukee River, S. First St., and Chase Ave., while the harbor entrance, Menomonee River, W. Canal St., and W. Stevenson St. constitute the east and west base line.

All streets north and south of the east and west base line bear the prefix "North" or "South," respectively, while all streets running east or west of the north and south base line bear the prefix: "East" or "West."

All houses and buildings are numbered on a basis of one number for each fifteen feet of property frontage, starting at the base line with the number 100, and continuing with consecutive hundreds at each street intersection, wherever possible. Where on ly one number is available for any house of building, and such house has an upper portion, or the property a rear house, the same number is used, including the suffix "A," "B," "C" etc. as required.
