N Ivanhoe & Chicago, c1932

One could almost imagine tumbleweeds blowing down an old west street but it’s actually the corner of N. Ivanhoe Street and Chicago Avenue in St. Johns. The Star Hotel, a rather rough-looking establishment, fronted on Ivanhoe which goes off to the right in this circa 1932 photo.
