NE 82nd & Sandy, 1928

NE 82nd Avenue was little more than a rutted, single-lane path north of Sandy Blvd in 1928. A nice brick confectionery shop on the northeast corner and new construction on the northwest corner signaled future growth for the area. The patchwork paving on Sandy probably shows the dividing line between city property on the left and county property on the right.

    Yeah, I live on 82nd and Prescott, so I live close to where this pic is taken. So cool to see how it used to be! Who knew that 82nd would become the majestic Avenue of Roses that it is today!
