E Burnside, 12th Avenue & Sandy, 1941

In this view of East Burnside where it intersects with 12th Avenue and Sandy, traffic seems to be moving in an orderly manner, perhaps aided by a traffic officer directing from the island in the middle of it all? The Tik-Tok Drive-In was going strong in 1941, seen just beyond the movie poster for “Rage in Heaven” starring Robert Montgomery and Ingred Bergman.
