One notable feature of this photo looking south on SE 82nd Avenue at Foster Road is the lack of traffic on 82nd. The little “Coney Island Sandwiches” building on the southwest corner was only recently removed.
This is a familiar location to the many who still prefer to buy their music on CDs. Music Millennium now occupies the old Smith Drug Co. and Piggly Wiggly Stop and Shop sites on E Burnside at 32nd Avenue. One of the sandstone gates at the entrance to the Laurelhurst neighborhood can be seen in the distance.
