Residential Street in Forest Grove

Description

Photograph was taken from the middle of the intersection of Third Avenue (17th Avenue) and First Street (Ash Street) looking West. The street is paved with curbs and sidewalks. There is a fire hydrant on the lift on the corner in front of the nearest house. This house is identified as the John A. Thornberg house. Mr. Thornberg was President of the Forest Grove National Bank. Other houses line the block on the left following the Thornberg house. On the right of the photograph a woman in a long coat stands at the back of a mid to late 1920s car. A railroad crossing sign can be seen down the street in the distance.
