  1. Thank you Chris for your present day image.
    The open windows suggest a summers day. As does the haze in the distance.

  2. The second floor of the building on the right (Pacific Coat Company) was in the 1960s Studio 1030, a collection of commercial artists.

  3. We lived in the old hotel for two months before moving onto the coast. Pacific City 1990’s. My parents moved to Vanport City when I was 6 1936. I lived most of my life in Portland. I am now in Indiana.

  4. If you make it around the tight corners to the upper Powells parking garage you can see the onetime paint booth of the car dealer. Parking spaces are wide enough unless you plan to exit your vehicle ~
