A view down Broadway at 8th Street reveals the street before it became a major artery in the city packed with large movie houses and several chain and department stores. A majestic Barker Bros., shown in the foreground, and a few other businesses do entice, as crowds of people fill the sidewalks to window shop. As shown here, shoppers can easily access Brodway by means of streetcars and automobiles.
