Bill, I think you are right that 40th Avenue was Crawford/Pulaski.
There's a 1900 map at "A Look at Cook" website
40th ave is clearly marked.
That address 1503 S 40th would be literally on the border of the 10th
I assume with the odd number "3" that it would be on the east side of
40th, so would be the 10th Ward.
The adjoining ward to the West would be the 28th Ward.
