SE Grand & Morrison, 1919

SE Grand Avenue really did look grand in this 1919 photo looking north from Morrison Street. A number of buildings shown here are still standing. Multiple streetcars are present going both north and south, horse-drawn and horseless carriages are about equal in number, and bicyclists and pedestrians complete the busy scene.

  1. That telephone pole on the northeast corner looks a little chewed-up. Maybe teamsters cut it close making right turns, kind of like some errant truck drivers today. Or it could have been the enormous beavers my Grandfather used to tell us about. They would come up from the Willamette at night and wander around. I wonder. πŸ˜‰
