  1. Also strange is that PortlandMaps says 4010 SE 67th Ave was built in 1913. So, the house in the Google Maps link above existed in 1971… I wonder where that pink house is actually located?

  2. On closer inspection, I now see that it is the same house. The chimney and rear garage all line up, it’s the front that’s changed. It’s been renovated in a terrible way. Sorry for so many posts!

  3. I remember when those fire box’s were all around town, I remember the one on NW Cornell on that sharp curve as it comes down into NW Portland.

  4. I think it could well be the same house—it just looks much different from the front compared to the side view.

  5. The Comet was originally supposed to be part of the Edsel car lineup. After Ford discontinued the Edsel it was transferred to Mercury to be sold at Mercury dealers but was not a Mercury Comet in the first year, just badged as Comet. A similar situation with the first Darts, a separate car sold by Dodge dealers. Eventually they became Mercury Comets and the Darts Became Dodge Darts.

  6. Friend of mine drove a 60 Comet wagon while we were in high school. Went to lots of “kegs” in that vehicle. And yes the one pictured is not a “60”. Tail lights give it away.

  7. Both 1960 and 1961 Comet sedans had the exact same tail lights. What makes the one in the photo a 1961 is the chrome trim on the front fender ahead of the wheel opening [ not on the 1960 ] and the large chrome deck lid ornament.

  8. Owner here. I found this picture at PARC while doing a bit of house research. The photographer of this picture worked for the city at the time. The owners wanted to sell 1/2 of their plot of land so another house could be built (currently, our next door neighbor). A few neighbors did not want this sale to go through, as they thought it would make the neighborhood look over crowded. So they wrote and complained to the city, who investigated the house and plot of land and took these photographs. So no, Carl, not every house has a pic. But you should still head to PARC or OHS and do a bit of research to see what you can find!
