SW Yamhill & Park, 1933

We’ve seen this view before but different vehicles make the scene unique. Looking south on SW Park Avenue from SW Yamhill, a Meier & Frank delivery truck is seen at center with a Rose City Pies delivery van parked at the curb. The car on the left curb has a “Walker’s” logo on the spare tire and it looks like a Jantzen girl figure in the center of the spare. The Admiral Hotel is visible across SW Taylor and beyond is the Old Heathman Hotel.

    Where the Terminal Cafe is later was the location of the Vat and Tonsure I believe. On the corner of the same building was Hamburger Mary’s. I miss both places.

    You and me both, Mr. Slama. Heck, I even miss the incongruous IHOP on the corner.

    I love how in-focus that truck is–looks like you could reach into the photo and pick it up.

    Reblogged this on Oregon Real Estate Round Table.

    Isn’t that truck with the box’s a Meier and Frank truck

    I think you are right, it is a Meier and Frank truck.
    Just think, today those boxes in an open truck would be stolen within 5 minutes.
