“This is the way Union and Market Streets looked in 1947.  Some old run down houses and not many people went in that area  The reason for the picture was to show the scene of a accident. I very seldom went in that area.  What a difference today.  This street now leads to the Mathews Bridge. Thousands of cars go by this corner.  Much wider streets and now its paved.”  LS

One of the many things Loyd Sandgren photographed to survive were accident scenes for insurance companies.  Sometimes he covered the actual event, other times he simply photographed the locations after the fact.
