19th Century Houses – Mystery Location

The location of these two homes-turned-businesses (shown here in 1973) should prove no great challenge to the astute VP fan. According to portlandmaps.com, both of these houses date to 1888. Both are still intact in the Portland area.

    Right next to the library in downtown Portland.

    Heh, my first thought was NW 21st or 23rd but that would have been too obvious. I wonder how much business the bookseller was able to pull in?

    Edmund Keene photography is still in business just a few blocks away at about 13th and Taylor.

    Yes, on Taylor. I used to go to a hair salon in the one on the right.

    They both look much nicer today than in the 70’s.

    Actually on SW Yamhill, but close enough… :)

    Place behind the station wagon used to be Harvey Welch Furniture. 1015 SW Yamhill I think.

    It’s funny to think that those cars are parked right where the MAX now runs daily.
