Spectators watch from the Broadway ramp as city crews work to build a temporary dike during the spring 1948 flood. It appears there was no Irving Street access to and from the ramp at that time. Union Station is over our right shoulder in this view to the west.

This lovely row of 1893 Queen Anne townhouses sits on NW Irving Street at NW 17th Avenue. The little streetside trees shown here in 1974 have matured into pretty large trees so the townhouses, also known as the Irving Street Brick Rowhouses, can be hard to see. You might get your best view during the winter months.
This four-story brick building served for about 80 more years after this photo was taken. It was occupied by a number of businesses over the years, including “Heywood Bro’s and Wakefield Co’s Wholesale Furniture” and United States Rubber Co., according to Sanborn maps. It was demolished in the late 1990s to make way for the 10th@Hoyt apartments. This 1917 view looks west on NW Irving from 9th Ave.
