  1. Perhaps School #2. We see the adjacent towers of the old radio station in background. Nice historical group shot.

  2. The tall 600 foot towers belonged to the Oregonian owned radio stations, KGW (AM 620) and KEX (AM 1190) that boomed their signal up and down the west coast. The smaller tower in the background, at picture center, was probably for the backup transmitters.
