These days, protecting views of the Space Needle are a big concern. Not in 1930, however, since the monument hadn't been constructed yet. Today, you'd see the Needle straight-ahead. And you certainly wouldn't see those houses on the right. This neighborhood isn't much of a "house" place anymore. So...what neighborhood are we in and what cross-streets are we looking at?
