SE Hawthorne & 37th, 1971

SE Hawthorne Blvd of 1971 was years away from becoming the funky shopping area it is now. Then it catered to the more mundane needs of everyday life; carpeting, furniture, loans, a locksmith, and of course a tavern. The Bagdad Tavern is now a Starbucks and the distinctive roof of the Bread and Ink Cafe is prominent across the street.
