SE 39th & Powell, 1937

Today we look south on SE 39th Avenue where it crosses Powell Blvd. We saw this intersection looking east in an earlier post. The 1935 photo showed a Signal gas station on the northeast corner; this would put a service station on at least three of the corners. Very competitive!

    Check out the cool stoplight on the corner.

    It’s grown up a little. The 76 station moved across the street.

    It’s not particularly beautiful in this photo and it’s not particularly beautiful today either. Part of the problem is that service stations ruin corners.
