Lloyd Center Construction, 1959

Construction of the Lloyd Center shopping center is just getting underway in the nice 1959 aerial photo. Holladay Park is one of the few identifiable features left today. This view looks to the northwest.

NE Sandy Blvd & 28th, 1937

NE Sandy Blvd slashes diagonally across this 1937 photo and intersects with NE 28th Avenue in the middle. The area south of Sandy hasn’t changed a whole lot; north of Sandy has grown more commercial. 28th at that time crossed Sullivan’s Gulch and the railroad track (upper right); it now spans the I-84 freeway too.
