Title: View looking up the sidewalk in front of 1323 South Broadway, 14 April 1932.

Description: Men walking on the sidewalk past the storefronts at 1323 South Broadway, 14 April 1932. The commercial district along South Broadway was once a busting streetscape, featuring merchandise displays on the sidewalk. It was so busy it was often likened to an outdoor market. By the 1950 marketing and sales had changed and customers no longer shopped on city sidewalks. The area along South Broadway declined, with only a few stores remaining, clustered together.
