Southwest Waterfront, circa 1950

In the last post we saw an aerial of the southwest waterfront, south of the Hawthorne Bridge. The image for today shows a woman sitting on the harbor wall seen in the aerial, about ten years later, circa 1950.

Memorial Coliseum Site, circa 1958

Here is another view of the Memorial Coliseum site before construction. We saw the same sight in a previous post from a different angle. Notice the housing along the waterfront that has not yet been demolished to make way for the coming Thunderbird Motel.

Can anyone help us with the location of this house? The images provide views of the home from two perspectives. The photograph was taken circa 1951.
