This home, somewhere on NE Broadway with an unspecified address, was probably directly south of yesterday’s service station. The structure on the Sanborn map on the southwest corner of NE Broadway and 11th matches this home.

The SE Bybee Blvd. overpass over SE McLoughlin Blvd. is shown here undergoing construction work in 1934. Rails for the Sellwood and Eastmoreland trolley lines can be seen in the foreground and in the distance to the west. Were they being replaced by the new trolley buses at this time?
Seeing the 1951 version of the Leonard Apartments (Fairmount Hotel building) last week, VP Fan Bud Holland dug through his archives and found this great circa 1910 postcard of the original Fairmount Hotel. There have been quite a few architectural changes since then, including extending the second floor rooms to the porch roof edge to provide more interior square footage. Thanks again Bud!
Update: This is probably not the Fairmount Hotel building. See the comments and discussion here. We’ll put this one in the Mystery Location category.
