20th & John through the decades

Inspired by the new CD News "CD Rewind" feature I went poking around in the City photo archives, and found several interesting shots of my house (2009 East John) showing the view before and during the birth of the funny little bush-covered traffic island (the Miller Triangle) where Thomas Street mysteriously turns into John Street (see this Miller Park history for details of origins of street names, etc).

1936: Looking down Thomas towards my house.

1955: Same view, during street straightening and Miller Triangle construction
1955: looking up John, towards Thomas, from 21st Ave E.
