  1. The Deere building is in the background and still exists next to the Morrison onramp, so the photo appears to be looking west. Great scene!

  2. It looks like the Deere Bldg is on the north side of the street,which would make this the corner of Grand and Belmont.

  3. It would seem to be that the building on the right with the Rainier sign painted on it is now Bit House Saloon. Love the Porky sandwich sign, too!

  4. Agree with Billy. This is looking at the northwest corner and the “Rainier Beer” sign building is still there.

  5. This is the view nowadays: https://www.google.com/maps/@45.5172757,-122.6606411,3a,75y,290.88h,85.15t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sL7SRhiYbVB6EvZriWgbyRA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en&authuser=0

    The buildings directly behind the streetcar were removed when the Morrison Bridge approaches were built. The building where the Rainier beer sign is is now on the “corner” and houses Bit House Saloon. The one-way-one-block stretch of Morrison that now runs between MLK and Grand was built where Rushlight’s, the furniture store, and the Smoke Shop once stood. FWIW, the Architectural Heritage Center is just off camera, a little further up the same block to the right.

  6. Was this before the new Morrison bridge? I don’t see anything in the old photo that looks like the new bridge was there yet.
