McCracken Company Building, 1978

As VP fan devlyn commented in response to yesterday’s post, the building roughly in the center of the photo is indeed today’s Ecotrust building, formally known as the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center. But it started out in 1895 as a warehouse for the J. McCracken Company. It was named Central Truck Terminal in the 1930s (as you see in yesterday’s photo) and from 1941 to 1997 it housed the Rapid Transfer & Storage Company. And so it was labeled in the late 1970s as seen in today’s post.
