Last year we looked at the intersection of SE Foster Road and 72nd Avenue in 1937. The photographer probably snapped this photo, looking west this time, during the same shoot. Traffic and parking didn’t seem to be big issues back then.

The E. Burnside-Couch couplet is now open, simplifying this once confusing intersection at NE Sandy, E. Burnside and 12th Avenue. Traffic is now one-way east on Burnside (bottom-right to top-left) and one-way west on Couch (far left). The beloved Tik Tok Drive In is at top-center in this 1939 photo.
A final look at the NW 23rd and West Burnside intersection, this time from Vista Avenue looking north. We see the old Henry Thiele Restaurant to the far left (now site of the Cost Plus World Market) and the Packard Building in the distant center. This photo is from 1952, a year earlier than the previous two.
