N.E. Sandy Boulevard in Portland, Oregon, was one of the busiest strips in the Pacific Northwest. A major Portland highway, the boulevard was dotted with small stores, gasoline stations, and houses until the late 1940s, when large shopping centers, supermarkets, and new car dealerships changed the landscape. These car-friendly businesses attracted shoppers from city and suburbs alike.
