Really great look at the bygone days before locals bought their most of their cheap Chinese merch by way of the Internets. Check this Wayback Wednesday report:

NE Corner of 39th Street and Summit Once Housed Local Shops, Apartments

One of the major transformations in Midtown in the mid 1900s was the construction of Southwest Trafficway, a traffic artery meant to carry downtown business people and shoppers to their homes in the suburbs. Although less congested routes were clearly needed at the time, an unintended consequences was the transformation of Summit from a local business center to a speedway knows as "the trafficway."
