This photo is identified as “Alex Klonoff 2nd Hand Goods, 208-210 NW Couch St.” Mr. Klonoff seems to have run a well-stocked logger supply store from what is now the Couch Street entrance to the Spyce Gentlemen’s Club. The stairway on the left may have led to an upstairs hotel but is now the long-gone but artistically gated Couch St. Gallery.

This 1932 proposal for a Memorial Park and Civic Center never made it past the model stage. This image (west is up) shows the Portland Heights neighborhood at top right and veteran’s hospital complex at left bottom. Note that the path of the proposed Foothill Boulevard at right closely matches the path of today’s Foothill Freeway (I-405) which wouldn’t appear for another 30 years.
It must be back-to-school time for Carl Opperman, standing in front of his grocery and confectionery shop at 918 N. Mississippi Avenue in 1932. Renumbered as 4236 N. Mississippi, that building now houses a laundromat on the southeast corner of Mississippi at Skidmore Street.
