E Burnside & 32nd, 1937

This is a familiar location to the many who still prefer to buy their music on CDs. Music Millennium now occupies the old Smith Drug Co. and Piggly Wiggly Stop and Shop sites on E Burnside at 32nd Avenue. One of the sandstone gates at the entrance to the Laurelhurst neighborhood can be seen in the distance.

    It’s one of the best places in town to buy vinyl records, as well :) Though they probably don’t have much music that was available in 1937. For that, Everyday Music is better :)

    Here’s a similar view in a short movie from 1939.
