The Chicago City Council passed a lengthy ordinance January 14, 1895, rationalizing the street naming system. Thorndale Avenue did not extend west far enough to enter West Ridge. Hence, no Thorndale Avenue addresses will require conversion.

This street is NOT listed in the 1895, 1897, 1898, 1901, 1902 Chicago Blue Book.

This street was named by John Lewis Cochran, the subdivider of the Edgewater community for Thorndale, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, his home town.
