  1. The image is correctly oriented, the steel post suggests a busy street approaching a freeway. That mix of properties looks very central and the architecture doesn’t look very east side.

    My gut tells me this is deeper in the alphabet streets near NW 20th. Street View on Vaughn doesn’t turn anything up, though.

    Can’t wait to see what the hive mind comes up with.

  2. When my wife was in Emmanuel, I did a lot of walking in the alphabet district. The architecture in this picture reminds me of what I saw at that time. I am playing with Google street view. Maybe, I’ll get lucky!

  3. For what it’s worth, he newest car puts this at the late ’70’s, despite the ’56 Chev convertible.

  4. Good detective work, CJ. And that little street tree has done very well for itself, and The City has respected it by moving the sidewalk around its now large trunk.

  5. I am pleased to see that the little tree next to the sign post has survived. Some nice buildings with interesting architecture lost however.

  6. I lived in the House next to the apartment building from 1970 to 1973 .
    Chows Hardware owned the house I rented.
    It was a beautiful 3 story house with a basement.
    Elia’s Grocery was located at the spot where the cars are parked.
    I used that lot as a parking lot when Billy Graham came to town.
    I had a large collection of cars and trucks and used the entire east side of 17th as my private parking area.Lol.
    I wanted to move that house to my 1/2 acre near 125th and Steele, but the Chown’s never notified me that they were going to expand their store.
    In 1980 I moved to Milwaukie near where CTC is located.
