NW 27th & Wilson, 1980

The area west of NW 27th 26th Avenue on Wilson Street looks only slightly less industrial today with the addition of some street side trees. Montgomery Ward is now Montgomery Park and much of the old American Can complex on the right has been converted to a parking garage. Long-disused railroad tracks still run down the street, a chain-link fence still borders the sidewalk and it looks like the same old classic railroad crossing sign is still in the same spot.
