  1. This looks like the United Methodist church at SE 35th and Yamhill. Maybe the picture is from Taylor?

  2. I think I found it.
    Christ the Redeemer Church
    3210 SE Taylor St

    If you move to the left in the Google streetview, you’ll see the other part of the building in the background

  3. Laura Parisi.. I agree. Looks like you posted yours while I was composing mine.
    This is definitely the church in the background

  4. AS AN OLD SUNNYSIDE GRADE SCHOOLER; THIS IS A VIEW FROM THE SCHOOL YARD . THE BOARDED UP BUILDING ACROSS THE STREET ( WHITE ) WAS ONE OF SEVERAL SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD STORES THAT SEEMED TO ” SPECIALIZE ” IN PENNY CANDY FOR THE AFTER SCHOOL WALK HOME IF YOU WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE A PENNY IN THOSE DAYS !! THEN THE TUSSLE TO KEEP FROM HAVING TO SHARE WITH THE OLDER GUYS WHO WOULD WATCH, LIKE HAWKS, WHO WENT IN & CAME OUT OF THAT LITTLE STORE LOOKING FOR ” A BITE ” OR A PIECE OFF A TOOTSIE ROLL, ETC.,ETC…… AH, THE 1940’S IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD WITH STREETCARS CLANGING, DRUG STORES ON TWO CORNERS OF , DAMASCUS DAIRY ( STEAL ICE OFF THE MILK TRUCKS ), AVALON PICTURE SHOWS, FUNERAL HOME ON CORNER, FIRE HOUSE & TAVERNS, TAVERNS AND MORE TAVERNS .

  5. Based on the view of the Redeemer Church (SE Taylor & 32nd), and the three houses to the left of it, I believe this is a photo taken on SE 33rd, looking West towards the church, approximately in front of the address of 1021 SE 33rd (the old Victorian in this photo).

    But what doesn’t match up is the modern building in the foreground. That building looks more like 3348 SE Taylor, a duplex that was built in 1965, so the time would be accurate.

    ???

  6. I live nearby so I walked over on my lunch break and took a picture of what I’m pretty sure is the view of this scene now. I was on the north side of SE Taylor and between 33rd and 34th. So, yeah it makes sense that this could be seen from the schoolyard before the townhouses were built.

  7. PHOTO BROUGHT BACK MEMORY OF THE 1947 CHRISTMAS PROGRAM AT THE CHURCH ; A CHRISTMAS TREE IN THE BASEMENT’S LITES SHORTED OUT & SUDDENLY THE WHOLE PLACE WAS FULL OF STINKY, ACRID SMOKE . THERE WAS NO PANIC & THE USHERS GOT EVERYBODY OUTSIDE WHERE WE WATCHED THE FIREMEN FROM UP THE STREET RUNNING DOWN THE SIDEWALK BEFORE THE FIRE ENGINE GOT TO THE SITE … DON’T KNOW WHERE THEY GOT THE FIRE HOSE , MAYBE CARRIED IT ALONG, BUT WERE SPRAYING WATER THRU THE BASEMENT WINDOW BY THE TIME THE FIRE TRUCK ARRIVED .. ALL PRETTY EXCITING AS A 2ND GRADER AND THE CHRISTMAS PROGRAM WAS DELAYED UNTIL WELL INTO JANUARY, OR SO IT SEEMED.

  8. Great,
    Great photo. Thanks for taking the time to post it!

    Bud: thank you for sharing your stories. They really add a lot of value to the site!

  9. That’s Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church (TaborSpace) in the background, approx. 54th and Belmont.

  10. Mistake. It’s Mars Hill Church at 3210 S.E. Taylor St. here’s a picture from Oregon Live, 2011.

    That’s Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church (TaborSpace) in the background, approx. 54th and Belmont.

  11. “FOUND: SE 33rd Avenue near SE Taylor Street looking west”

    Shouldn’t that be SE 34th and Taylor looking west? View appears to be from Sunnyside School park which is on 34th, plus the still standing ranch style apartment behind the boarded up white building is closer to 34th than 33rd.
