SE Union & Hawthorne, 1937

May 10, 2013

This is a quaint and long-gone 1937 landscape looking south on SE Union Avenue. There’s no on-street parking today, and certainly no $1.50-$3.00 weekly housekeeping rooms. However you will pass under the Hawthorne ramp at this intersection today.

Howard Cooper Corporation – Mystery Location

September 14, 2010

Today’s Mystery Location is a nice slice of bustling Portland circa 1937. There’s not much to go on to pinpoint this location; the Howard-Cooper Corporation building still stands but the rest of the landscape is vastly changed. Happy hunting!
