SE Foster Rd & 52nd, 1937

Here’s another look at SE Foster Road at 52nd Avenue, this time looking east down the south side of Foster. It appears all the commercial buildings have changed over the years but the residences along 52nd are still in place. Today’s hot rod builders would probably go nuts over the original partsĀ in the Foster Road Auto Wreckers building.

    Your right! I would go nuts over all those perfect parts! A BIG thanks to Mike D for yesterday’s “Merle” post, never heard that one. New favorite

    That must be the forerunner to line 71 before trimet. I’ve spent a lot of time waiting on that bus in the exact same spot as the bus in the picture.

    Great post showing another long-gone business and building! Most recent street view showing those houses have stood up well:
