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.

This photo is a bit of a mystery. The record for it says, “Photo is documenting extension of Sandy to SE Belmont.” I don’t know exactly which corner it was but I have a feeling it looks southwest at Burnside and 12th where Sandy will make its diagonal cut. This must have been the golden age of billboards; this one is a beauty!
This is a nice 1937 aerial view of the Hollywood District with NE Sandy Blvd and 42nd Avenue meeting near the middle; the view is to the northwest. Many of the larger buildings are still in place, including the Hollywood Theater, but most of the single family homes are gone.
