This is a quaint and long-gone 1937 landscape looking south on SE Union Avenue. There’s no on-street parking today, and certainly no $1.50-$3.00 weekly housekeeping rooms. However you will pass under the Hawthorne ramp at this intersection today.

Arrows direct westbound drivers from SW Pine onto SW Broadway in this circa 1938 image. The three cars lined up at the stoplight are eastbound on W. Burnside.
