  1. @Bob S, 266 looks like it’s under construction. Could the date be 1918 when the open cars were enclosed?

  2. There have been several Trolley & Streetcar car barns in Portland over the years, and a couple of other possibilities are the Sellwood car barn that was located on SE Linn between SE 11th & SE 13th which has been replaced by condo complex, and the Trolley barn at 2705 E Burnside. Looking at a 1951 aerial photo of the E Burnside car barn it appears to be twice the size of the current building, and occupied the space where the parking lot next to the Laurelhurst Theater is.
