This is an intriguing photograph. I had never heard of Cherry Street.

We're looking north on Cherry Street and the cars are turning onto Washington Blvd. at a T Intersection.

Looking at this, I am amazed the freeway missed Chester Place (and St. James Park as well).

If you look closely, these are the same two buildings seen in the 1954 photograph.
