We’ve seen this view looking north on NE 82nd Avenue as it crosses Sandy back in 1928. This photo, taken from almost the exact same spot six years later, shows a much improved 82nd Avenue, but it looks like the paving ends a few blocks north, maybe at Prescott?

At first glance you’d think these two imposing homes on NE Union Avenue at Knott Street are long gone. Surprisingly, they both still stand today, as does the third home in the background.
