This crisp 1930 photo of Lower Greenville Avenue is from the Texas/Dallas History and Archives Division of the Dallas Public Library.

It’s easy to identify the familiar architecture and note the old businesses: A&P grocery store and the Arcadia Theater among them.

Thanks to Dallas historian Mark Doty for digging this up.
