SW 6th & Salmon, 1936 – Part 2

The photographer who took this photo in 1936 turned around and snapped today’s photo facing the opposite direction, looking north on SW 6th from Salmon. The Pacific Building, Pioneer Post Office and Meier & Frank buildings are familiar down the right side of the street. On the left, the Hilton Hotel fills the parking lot, and the 1981 Pacific First Center replaced the YMCA building.
