Today’s photo shows the old SW Harbor Drive as it enters downtown from the south. This area is just south of the Hawthorne Bridge (see the bridge tower at the bottom). Two previous Vintage Portland photos show this area’s progression over the years, here in 1928 (shown just last week) and here in 1939. From its rough waterfront beginnings, this part of town is now populated with banks, luxury hotels and high rise apartments. Notice the Battleship Oregon’s mast in the small park before its move to its present location just south of the Burnside Bridge.
