  1. If you enlarge and look in the far distance near Mt. Tabor you will see what looks like 2 large triangles. Anyone have any idea what those two things are?

  2. The small maple trees along 99-E in this photo were planted in 1937 and now join over the road like a canopy. Westmoreland park was cow pasture before this clearing for parkland. I see no streetcar tracks on the viaduct that were removed in the recent destruction and replacement.

  3. I like the two massive Douglas Firs in front of Reed. They must have added grandeur to the front of the building. It looks like they are gone today.

  4. I bet the plantings in the upper left are Lambert Gardens. Not Lambert Gardens Apartments, but actually Lambert Gardens. Look between two grassy fields. The gardens were at 28th & Steele.
