  1. Although the signs of things to come are present in the 1932 photo, the area looks peaceful and green. A place where one might want to be. There is nothing about the ’67 or present day pictures that make me want to be there.

  2. This is what three decades of laissez-faire “planning” will do to a place (1932 pic compared to 1967). Take a somewhat rural and bucolic country road and turn it into a property-value sinkhole for the proceeding 70 years. Just like the Minnesota freeway, it has a significant blighting effect.

  3. Kitten In 1967 82nd was the main entrance to the Portland Airport of course it would be more active.

  4. Kitten: I think 82nd’s future was determined when the state designated it a highway in the ’20s or so. Still, the city’s zoning 82nd as an auto row certainly contributed to the current state of ’82nd.
