The followup to yesterday’s photo shows the completed work after removal of the westbound rails on SE Hawthorne from 50th. The eastbound rails were probably next to be removed. I’m willing to bet those cobblestones are still under today’s asphalt though.
Here’s a side view of the Stadium Tavern on the northeast corner of W Burnside and NW 19th Street after its 1949 fire. A McDonald’s is on the spot now but the house behind it still stands.
