Tigard night scene

Description

Tigard main street at night. A garage and gas station sits on one side of the street, while neon signs for restaurants, banks, dry cleaners, and other businesses line the other side of the street. Several cars are parked along the street in front of the various businesses. The garage sign reads 'Lee Ariss Gas Garage' and also advertises 'Richfield' and 'Green stamps' as well as 'General Blacksmithing, Welding (Electric- Acetylene)' and 'Body Shop.' The other side of the street has signs for 'Green Valley' cafe, '[illegible]rg's Cleaners,' a 'Beauty Shop' with perms for $5.00, 'United States National Bank, Tigard Branch,' and a hardware store selling paints and plumbing equipment. A railroad crossing sign stands near the center of the image, and bright halogen street lights dominate the center of the image.
