Grand & Morrison Transfer

Here is the intersection of Grand & Union on the east side, a horse drawn streetcar transfer point. The Morrison Bridge had just been built and there was a horse car line across that bridge and there was another one that ran up MLK Blvd to the ferry to Vancouver. This was a point where you transferred from one line to another. Storekeeper opened a shop here to sell to waiting passengers - an easy example of transportation and land use integration.
