These two little homes, at 3223 and 3225 SE Belmont, suffered much abuse before they were photographed in 1944. In the long run, they didn’t survive at all.

There’s an auto-related business on the northeast corner of SE 20th Avenue and Belmont Street today. Yesterday’s post showed there was one there in 1965, and today’s post shows there was one there in 1931 also. It might even be the same building still standing. The crew doing the sewer repair here seems to be doing it with a dusting of snow on the ground.
The Mt. Tabor streetcar line tracks snake through the intersection of SE Belmont at 55th Avenue. The Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church is to our immediate left as we look east down Belmont, with the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company Public Station dead ahead.
The Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church was just a few years old when this circa 1914 photo was taken looking west on SE Belmont at 55th. The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company Public Station, on the left, was new. Both buildings are still there but they’re much harder to see from a distance with the dense foliage in the neighborhood today.
