You Vintage Portland fans are so good that last week you were able to find our mystery building even though it was not in Portland at all, but down in Woodburn. Congratulations, job well done.
This week the City Archives has provided photos of two shops. I’m not sure they are connected but they have enough in common that I decided to feature them together. Both have the same style of building features (diagonal paneling, etc.), awnings, signage, even sidewalk patterns. The only clues to the location are the addresses “410″ above the gentleman’s head and “430″ on the door frame above the lady’s head. The numbering is another indicator that they may be connected. Reflections in the windows may be the most significant clues. Good luck and happy hunting!
Found: NE 4th Avenue, near Dallas St., Camas, WA (bottom photo)
