Pictured in 1959, this Central District street is missing a few things. It doesn't know it yet but eventually it'll be lined with beautiful cherry trees and their pink blossoms. Most if not all of the apartments buildings pictured still stand, though that mailbox hasn't survived the years. You won't find old times cars lining the streets anymore but there's still plenty of parking. Any idea what intersection we're standing at?
