Description

Black and white image of a two-story brick building on a street corner with a number of cars parked along the curb and other vehicles in the street. The building has arched lower windows and an arched entrance on the corner. The signs on the building advertises 'Miller's Quality Foods, phone 3661.' The next sign advertises 'Dean's Drugs' and 'Dean's Rexall Drugs.' A delivery truck in front of the building belongs to 'Reedville Truck Service.' To the left of the image, down t he street, signs advertise 'Rogers Bakery,' the 'Tip Top Coffee Shop' and 'Beaverton Hardware,' and 'Pegg's Mortuary.' A man on a ladder adjusts an awning over one store front, and several cars including a 'woody' wagon, a sedan whose body is constructed of wood with wood framing. The street is paved, and a manhole cover can be seen in the center of the intersection. A city bus approaches in the distance, passing a school bus heading the other way. The signpost on the street corner indicates this is the intersection of Oregon Highways 217 and 208, and arrows point the direction to four local cities: Tigard, Progress, Laurel, and Hazeldale.
