The buildings on the north side of East Colorado Street, pictured in 1929, give a sense of Pasadena's business district on the eve of the Depression. The storefront with the arches is the Pitzer and Warwick clothing store, boasting the slogan "For Lad and Dad." On the far right is Vroman's Bookstore. Pasadena's iconic city hall rises up in the background.
