The Oregonian Building, 1909

The Oregonian Building was built on the northwest corner of SW 6th and Alder in 1892. It was demolished in 1950, two years after The Oregonian moved to new headquarters on Broadway. This panorama of downtown Portland was taken from the tower of the old building.

  1. What a shame. I can remember a nice little Deco storefront on that block on 6th between Alder & Stark. I think it was a jewelry store at one time.
