NE Broadway & 33rd, 1953

This 1953 photo shows NE Broadway looking east west at 33rd Ave. It’s looking in the opposite direction as the one featured here from the same year (and probably the same day). The Albina Fuel company is again shown here, as well as a Kelly Tire store, both long gone from here.

  1. Wouldn’t this photo be looking west? Maybe I’m mixed up, but I always thought Albina Fuel was located on the southwest corner of NE Broadway and 33rd?

  2. Just in case there is still any confusion, the Albina Fuel building and those around it were on the southwest corner of 33rd and Broadway. They are all gone and the land is currently vacant but a New Seasons, apartments and other shops are planned for the site.

  3. I don’t know the exact year they left, but I was buying Biodiesel from Albina at this location well into the 2000s.
