SW 6th & Morrison, 1952

It doesn’t look like we’ll be having a white Christmas in Portland this year. This 1952 photo shows snow removal efforts on SW 6th Avenue looking north toward Morrison. Note that the Portland Hotel had been demolished on our immediate left and the new Meier & Frank parking lot was just being constructed.

    No snow on Street View http://g.co/maps/3udsm
    I heard most of the US isn’t going to have a white Christmas.

    Are there any photos of the Portland Hotel as it sat empty in its last months and of its razing?
