In a previous post we viewed Union Station looking northwest. In this image we see the area looking southeast in October 1913.
This view of Union Station was taken from NW 6th Avenue looking north. There are multiple hotels visible in this image, including Hotel Barr, Hotel Rainer, and Hotel Hoyt.
This photograph comes from a Sign Compliance survey that took place in 1976. This image shows the corner of NW Couch Street and 3rd Avenue, looking southwest.
These children are hiking in Forest Park. On the back of the photograph there is a note stating, “Forest park offers deep-woods trails. Easily accessible to city dwellers. Such hikes organized by park bureau playground directors thru the summer months.”
This image provides an aerial view looking northeast from the Guild’s Lake Pumping Station. The railroad bridge, the “cut,” Doane Lake, and St. Johns are visible. Also visible along Willamette Blvd. are the Water Bureau’s Alma and St. Johns Water tanks.
This is a view of West Burnside St. looking east from 3rd Ave. taken on October 18, 1913. There are several signs and advertisements that are visible in this photograph, including Clark’s, All Nations Saloon, and a U.S. Army Recruiting Station window sign. Notice the mounted police officer and the old Burnside Bridge in the background.
The Whitwood Court Hotel was located near the St. Johns Bridge on St. Helens Road, now Highway 30. This image was taken on November 10, 1938.
