Before & After: SE 39th AVE, 1974

Even today the mighty SE 39th Avenue peeters out in a mess of gravel shoulders and missing sidwalks. Here we see the road as it looked in 1974, South of Berkley Park, prior to rebuilding. One unintended consequence of eliminating all this wonderful loose gravel is the loss of a minor American pastime: the unintentional burnout. A simple thrill afforded the driver of even the most modest RWD steed.
