SW 4th & Sheridan, 1937

In April we saw photos of this area being filled for the extension of 4th Avenue south of Sheridan street. Here is that same street in roughly the same view four years later. Some of the same houses can be seen in the backgrounds of both photos.

  1. I notice there is a US Highway shield on the right side of the street, I think it has the number 99. This fill was part of converting the old Southern Pacific rail-line into the first real highway into Portland, Barbur Blvd.
