This nifty aerial view shows the I-5 Eastbank Freeway construction through inner North and Northeast Portland in 1962. In the upper right corner are NE Weidler and Broadway going east-west and Vancouver Avenue snaking across the construction on a temporary overpass. This view is to the southeast and another view of the same area can be seen here.

Real estate businessman W.M. Killingsworth platted the Walnut Park addition to Portland in 1905. 80 acres were divided into 400 lots and deeds stated only residential buildings would be built. He built this fine home for himself facing N Alberta Street between N Vancouver and Commercial Avenues, and extended north past Sumner Street. Thanks to VP fan Roxanne for suggesting this image.
