Photograph of Santa Barbara Avenue (later Martin Luther King Boulevard) looking west from Vermont Avenue, May 26, 1937. This is a view of the street before the removal of poles and the paving of the center section of the street. Tracks run across the street in the foreground and down the two opposing streets that continue into the distance. A trolley car travels along the tracks down the center of the street where electrical poles stand. Cars fill the streets and sit parked along their sides where various shops stand behind lamp posts. Compares to CHS-42158 taken after road work.
