Traffic was not much of an issue along NE 82nd Avenue at Glisan Street in 1939. Those days are long gone, along with probably everything we see in this photo.

Today we look south on SE 39th Avenue where it crosses Powell Blvd. We saw this intersection looking east in an earlier post. The 1935 photo showed a Signal gas station on the northeast corner; this would put a service station on at least three of the corners. Very competitive!
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.
