This lovely old home, shown in 1974, still stands somewhere in the Portland area. Sadly, the lot is so overgrown with foliage that it’s almost impossible to see the house from the street. You have your work cut out for you!
Harbor Drive approaches to and from the Steel Bridge are shown in this circa 1950 photo looking north. Front Street parallels Harbor Drive on the left and the intersection with the DeSoto and Blitz billboards is at Davis Street. Some of this roadwork still exists.
The Jacob Kamm house is shown here on its move from its original site near SW 14th and Salmon, to where it now rests on SW 20th Avenue. This view is west on Salmon Street. The Zion Lutheran Church can be seen in the distance on the right, and the cluster of homes on the left of the image is still intact along SW Madison at 18th. This is another great photo sent by Bud Holland.
Bart’s Drive-In dominated the triangle at SE Powell Blvd., Foster Rd. and 50th Avenue in this 1948 aerial photo. The “George, Don & Buford – Meet Us & Wear Clothes” at upper-left is an oddity. Post-war army surplus maybe?
