N. Fremont & Vancouver, 1937

Wonder Bread has been available to generations of Portlanders as this 1937 advertisement on N. Vancouver Avenue attests. The view is east on Fremont Street.

    Wow, in street view that’s all vacant lots now. http://g.co/maps/37azf

    Howdy Dave…Thanks! I think you’re possibly looking west though with your Google link. Perhaps we’re instead to look East towards Mt. Hood. That or Google maps makes us look West 1st.

    I love Google maps.

    I’m thinking that’s the actual bakery building?

    Dbrunker’s right. All vacant lots now. I used to live nearby, and Google maps is looking east.

    The Wonder Bread sign is actually the Wonder Bread Bakery. I worked there in the 60’s There tore it down a few years ago and now the block is home to New Seasons
