Just a reminder, the Oregon Archives Crawl is happening this weekend! Join us between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., in celebration of Oregon Archives Month.
We didn’t want to leave you without a photo. Remember to bring a friend!
Sheldon’s Service Station was located on the corner of SE Clay and 12th Avenue. This photograph was taken looking east towards SE Ladd Avenue, 1927.
Over the years, the Portland waterfront has transformed many times. Here is what the waterfront looked like circa 1918. This view is looking west, towards downtown Portland.
R.W. Peterson Grocery was located at 809 Montana Avenue. After the street renumbering it became 3839 N Montana Avenue. On the right side on the image, you can see the company truck, and there is a large Davidson’s Prized Bread advertisement on the side of the building. The date is circa 1931.
Yesterday’s post featured a MacMarr Store, so we thought we’d show you another one that was located on the corner of NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. (Union Ave. at the time) and Shaver St. This building is still standing today.
This building, still standing on the corner of NE Broadway and 28th Avenue, housed several business, including Fernwood Pharmacy, one of the MacMarr Stores, Gaston Meats, and S & S Garage.
This is a view of West Burnside St. looking east from 3rd Ave. taken on October 18, 1913. There are several signs and advertisements that are visible in this photograph, including Clark’s, All Nations Saloon, and a U.S. Army Recruiting Station window sign. Notice the mounted police officer and the old Burnside Bridge in the background.
