Another excellent D.E. Keasey real estate illustration from 1909. This is a beautiful, very accurate representation looking northeast over Portland Heights. The fine detail even shows the Council Crest streetcar on Vista Avenue at upper right.

We’ve seen this Portland Heights illustration before but this version is without the folds shown in the previous one. It also presents it in context of the full-page D.E. Keasey & Co. real estate ad in 1907. $550 gave you your choice of 50 lots at the time.

Hard to believe that somebody would build on the the lot on this corner due to the steepness of the slope. It would take almost a half-century but a single family home sits on the SW Montgomery Drive site just below where it meets SW Vista (beyond railing at top). It looks like Montgomery was getting the forms removed from its first paving job.
