    Anyone know which corner this is? Perhaps the northeast corner of Alaska and MLK? Or would it be SE? Probably not the W side because you don't see Beacon Hill in the background. If the location is Alaska and Empire (MLK) it's not really Beacon Hill -- it's in the Valley.

    Based on the county's 1936 aerial photos of that intersection, you were right to think NE. You can go over to iMAP, hit Property Search, and enter parcel 6056110020; at the bottom of the Layers frame, expand Imagery and select 1936 B/W Aerial Photos. Sadly I can't figure out any way to link to a specific parcel in iMAP, much less select active layers.

    Wow. I didn't realize we had 1936 aerial photos of the area. Thanks!
