Portland’s Memorial Coliseum was dedicated January 8, 1961, “…to the memory of our veterans of all wars who made the supreme sacrifice.” Take a moment this weekend to honor all U.S. men and women who died while in military service.

This lovely little 1878 cast-iron-fronted building was photographed in 1967 when it graced a Portland street. Its name and precise location are both unrecorded but a couple of subtle clues allow you to zero in on a location. Did you reach the same conclusion as I did? As always, happy hunting!
This early-1930s photo shows the intersection of 3rd Avenue looking west on Burnside before the Burnside widening project. We had an earlier look at this intersection looking south on 3rd across Burnside.
