The intersection of SE 82nd Avenue at Foster Road appears to be a quaint crossroads in 1937, far from the bustling city with all its traffic. This view is to the north.
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.
