SE Union & Hawthorne, 1937

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.

SW Pine & Broadway, c1937

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.
