Once again we see Sherdahl looking afar from his nursery. Was it possible for him to foresee what thirty years would bring? Speculation was engrained in the frontier ethos. He made it this far. His land was on the most important road in the city. Of note, the grid shifts dramatically from east to west here. (CVA)

The Shell station at the same intersection and perhaps the same corner as the nursery. A morning according to the shadows.  Leonard Frank took the picture in May, 1933. The symmetry of the art deco canopies mimics wings or branches depending on your historical mood. (VPL)
