  1. Where Crystal Springs Creek crosses SE 28th a new bigger culvert has been put in. Maybe salmon will return to the creek.

  2. There is actually still a semi-rural feel to the two properties running next to the new culvert. I have always loved this little area.

  3. A friend of my father’s said he used to get salmon at night at Reed when he was growing up in the late 30’s-early 40’s. Hopefully they come back. I remember catching trout in Johnson Creek in the late 50’s-early 60’s. Rode my bike from Alameda area there and back, pretty much an all day outing. Also the West Hills in the background look awful naked.

  4. the house is at the corner of SE 28th & the closed Reedway St. I live just across the tracks & the super highway from where this shot was taken. Another great picture of the way it was.

  5. I remember coming right down this stretch in the early 1960’s, sometimes 4-5 times a week. It was part of my Ross Island Bridge-to 99E-to Holgate-to 28th-to 4106 Woodstock shortcut.

  6. I think is this is why when my dad was growing up after they built banfield, they called it a “racetrack for hotrods”.

  7. You’ve got my entire office in a buzz today. We all work in that large brick building in the background. Back in the day it was called “The Iron Fireman Building”. Now it’s Peco Manufacturing. Thanks!
