NE Broadway & 33rd, 1953

You can probably still get a beer along NE Broadway just east of 33rd Avenue, but where you once would sit in the Cubby Hole Tavern you can now get a pizza and sit in the sun on a nice day. Benny’s cafe is long gone but the structure still stands. Even the billboards are still in place along this stretch of Broadway, and the little trees still soften the front of Gordon’s Fireplace Shop on the right.
