Westside Seawall Construction, 1928

Construction of the westside seawall and sewer continues in this 1928 photo. All this activity is taking place between the Burnside (behind) and Morrison Bridges, with the Hawthorne Bridge even farther to the south. The building at right is the 1882 Starr block, on Pine Street, demolished in 1942.

  1. Interesting window arrangement on the Starr Block – I wonder, was there a building there in the center (explaining the “blank” area) or was it planned as a billboard? 🙂
