Very cool 1910 photo of W. Burnside looking east from 19th Avenue through the intersection at 18th; Alder angles off to the right. Burnside was actually Washington Street at this time; Burnside ended where Washington angled in from the east, and Washington continued on to 23rd where it became Barnes Road. A number of buildings seen here are still around.

The backsides of these shops faced West Burnside while the fronts opened onto SW Washington Street (on our right) in this 1917 photo. The view is southeast at Burnside and 15th and the 1911 Carlton Hotel looms in the background. You’d be looking down onto I-405 freeway today.
