  1. “Mothers March Headquarters” ? adjacent to White Shield and Manpower Inc…. interesting corner!

  2. It’s not White Shield, it’s OPS Blue Shield, a health insurance organization. OPS stood for Oregon Physicians’ Service.

  3. at craig,

    back in the day the homeless moved up and down Burnside from the bridge west to the Park block park. If they had been out doing temp work they could get a room for the night or a quick meal at the mission. Sleeping under the bridge on rainy nights, in the Park grass during the summer, and right on the sidewalk when they couldn’t walk.
