Our Number Man finds himself standing in front of three near-identical houses on the northwest corner of NE Union Avenue and Stanton Street in about 1929. This was probably in preparation for widening of Union Avenue, as seen in several other photos here recently.

Our Number Man finds himself standing on the sunny corner of NE Union Avenue & Russell Street in 1929. The same building can be seen down the street in this previous post.
That building on the east side of NE Union Avenue at the end of Russell Street today is a blank wall of sheet metal paneling; this 1937 photo shows the storefronts underneath the paneling. The old grocery/soda fountain on the right is also a nondescript commercial building today. The corner doesn’t have as much character as it once did.
