  1. Street parking was at a real premium even in this 60 year old photo, long before those in power here in 2014 decided it was okay to build apartment buildings with little or no off street parking avail for renters who own cars or trucks.

  2. @jesse: There is still a water tower there, just moved back quite a distance from the road. The top can be seen just above the “Cleaners” sign.

  3. The Water Tower Building is the one that is marked Portland Furniture Mfg. Co., and the water tower on top of it is out-of-frame to the left. The water tower we can see in this photo is down the street, and no longer exists.
