Help Us Out! Posted on January 31, 2019 by Vintage Portland 18 Can anyone identify the location of these houses? City of Portland (OR) Archives, A2004-002 FOUND: Houses on SE Stark Street at SE 36th Avenue Rate this:Share this:FacebookPinterestTwitterEmailRedditLike this:Like Loading... Related
3603 SE Stark Street.
The aluminum roofing shown on the home on the right was quite popular in NE Portland.
Not sure, but I’ll throw out a guess. One of the streets between 39th and Laurelhurst Elementary School? I went to Laurelhurst 1962-1966 and this looks familiar.
Steve above got it https://www.google.com/maps/place/3603+SE+Stark+St,+Portland,+ORemail@example.com,-122.6270561,3a,75y,5.84h,90t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sd87fy3AW2mWAyJLmyVulqg!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3Dd87fy3AW2mWAyJLmyVulqg%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dsearch.TACTILE.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D86%26h%3D86%26yaw%3D5.838941%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x5495a0eb23b95017:0x1bde897328df370d!8m2!3d45.5195028!4d-122.6270438
Believe the barn-like house belonged to the Bravender family. It was near the Pietro Belluschi church (now Central Lutheran) in the north east Grant HS area. Good luck.

Hi, I’m a certified real estate appraiser in Oregon, I have located where this property is!, I enlarged the picture and noted the white house’s address which reads 3603, I cross referenced 52 properties in Multnomah County and the address for the white house is 3603 SE Stark Street!, See old RMLS #5022695!, Picture appears to be taken in the mid 1960’s if I had to guess, also look at the red tile roof on the house on the far left and look at the minor damage on the “hurricane” shingles on the Dutch colonial, Best regards, Appraiser Mike
I wonder if this was taken after the Columbus Day Storm? That tile roof on the left looks ravaged!
Nothing better than a “help us out” email. You folks are amazing! So interesting!
Thank you to everyone that helped us out with this image! We have updated the information we have on this image to reflect the location that you helped us find!
@Claudia It looks like the asphalt shingles on the middle house took a hit too but not as bad as the concrete tiles next door. I see a deciduous tree missing most of its leaves so October after a storm is likely. One question that comes to mind is why was the photo taken?
Not quite as much grass in front of 3603 anymore! Grew up in laurelhurst and it felt close to there. Nice work!
As to why the photo was taken, it’s possible that we have three different roof styles, with three different roofing materials, and this photo offers an illustration as to what happens when a big wind storm comes along. (Also, I’m reminded of a story involving three little pigs, but that’s probably not relevant here.)
Trying this with Dave’s link, thanks to Robert’s advice yesterday.
One more try — I didn’t see the HTML link until after I noticed my first try didn’t work.
Craig…you made my day. Love the humor.
Suppose this could be the aftermath of the Columbus Day Storm (1962)?
looks like the aluminum roof is still there !!
This is right across the street from what were sometimes called the Villa Marconi or Laurel Bungalow Apartments, designed by my kinsman Ewald T. Pape: https://abt-unk.blogspot.com/2018/11/those-places-thursday-villa-marconi.html
