January 14, 1940 — Newhall 5-10-25 Cent Store, 644 Spruce Street — the southeast corner of Market Street and Spruce. Looking east-northeast. Market Street was equivalent to 7th Street; the 700+ numbers were in the block to the north of the intersection.

In the 1950s, the county of Los Angeles renamed Spruce Street "San Fernando Road" and changed the street addresses from three digits to five. 644 Spruce Street became 24274 San Fernando Road. In 2007, when this section of the road was again renamed — this time by the city of Santa Clarita — it became 24274 Main Street. It was home to El Trocadero Mesquite Grill and Cantina.

To the right of the five-and-dime, the sign says "[illegible] FREE LIBRARY."

At left, the business at the northeast corner of Market and Spruce is a car wash. Behind it, the 1931-1932 county courthouse is visible.

The 3¼x5-inch glossy photograph, from a flea market, is unattributed; the only writing on the back is the date.
