Cornerspotter: What Central District Intersection Is This?

Here's a Central District intersection as it looked in 1918. That house is gone, sadly, though today there are still residences in its place, not to mention a place where all those residents can but their groceries. Across the street, those two apartment buildings still stand. Back then, they were called The Alta Vista. Today, they go by a different name. So, what intersection are we looking at?
