This classic view of the North Park Blocks is from 1921. Trolley tracks ride up the center of the Belgian block-paved NW Glisan Street with Park Avenue branching off to the right.

This photo is identified as being of the 1915 Rose Festival Parade along N. (now NW) 6th Avenue. Ads in The Oregonian show The Nickelodeon theater on SW 6th between Alder and Washington, across from The Oregonian Building. Had The Nickelodeon moved north of Burnside by 1915? Is this photo totally mislabeled? A mystery to be solved!
Found: SE Grand at Morrison.
Lots of character in this 1927 photo of the northwest corner of West Burnside and NW Park Avenue. Lots of characters, too; groups of men chatting car repair, a gentleman filling his gas tank, and two men working around a hole in the street at far right. Lots of great signs, too, including “Benson Garage” on the brick wall which can still be seen today.
