NW 11th & Hoyt, 1917

Tanner Creek sewer construction made a muddy mess of NW 11th Avenue at Hoyt Street in 1917. The Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway North Bank Station passenger and freight depot buildings north of Hoyt are still there, converted to residential units in the 1990s.

    Neat shot. Don’t have any from this angle showing the suspended sign that says “North Bank Station”. The UP/OWR&N freighthouse still exists too. Most people know it now as the car park for McCormick Pier along Front Avenue. Sadly the joint NP/SP freighthouse was torn down c.1965 for the new, central post office.

    Looks surprisingly modern to me, other than the row of lanterns. Street view: http://g.co/maps/uxsdn
