  1. Awe, Grandma’s Cookies to the right with the large smokestack. This neighborhood must have smelled wonderful in the morning.

  2. My brother-in-law was the chief engineer for Grandma’s and the
    door on the right of the photo was to his shop. And the truck going
    over the shoo-fly belongs to Risbergs Truck Line. Back then, they
    were a contract carrier for Fred Meyer who were pretty much just a local store then.

  3. Shoo-fly, don’t bother me… I get that song stuck in my head every time someone mentions one of those things. 🙂

    Is it just me, or have the Grandma’s cookies declined in both size and quality over the years?

  4. The pillars don’t look quite tall enough! I am reassured that they are sunk deeper than they appear as you drive by them but I wonder if they were done in two pieces? I will have to look next time I go under the over pass to see if the underside of the bridge goes down to them.
    and yes grandma’s is not so good anymore

  5. Grandma’s was supposedly burned down by the black panthers. So they moved to Beaverton and were bought by Frito Lay. They are now closed. Cookies being made out of state most likely.
