NW Industrial District, c1929

An interesting aerial view of the Northwest Industrial District showing proposed routes of NW Front and Yeon Avenues. At this time Front stopped at Nicolai Street (lower left corner) and Yeon had not yet been built. Yeon would meet St. Helens Road at the foot of Forest Park.

    Looks like the fill is still settling in Guild’s Lake.

    I spotted two buildings that are still standing.

    The building in the lower left corner with the white tower on the roof is the old Coffee Bean International building. Still standing today. I used to work there.
