SE 39th Ave & Belmont, 1949

May 12, 2014

SE 39th Avenue was just another north-south suburban street until it’s designation as an artery and widening to 90 feet. Here is what it looked like as it passed Belmont Street in 1949 before the widening project.

3223 SE Belmont, 1944

April 14, 2014

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.

SE Belmont & 28th, 1940

March 25, 2014

This 1940 photo looks eastward down the center of SE Belmont Street at 28th Avenue. Many buildings of this era sported awnings to keep cool in the days before air conditioning.

SE 20th & Belmont, 1931

January 16, 2014

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.

SE 20th & Belmont, 1965

January 15, 2014

Here’s what SE 20th Avenue north to Belmont Street looked like in 1965. Since then, there have been more changes to the north of Belmont than to the south, it seems.
