  1. I’m lov’in it! Thought I had just about all the photos of this area in vintage times, But not this one at that angle.

  2. Wouldn’t want to live there, but it would be an interesting place to visit. Besides being long gone, it’s an interesting mix of housing and other uses capable of meeting all of one’s needs in easy walking distance.

  3. Love to see an old photo of Portland’s REO Trucks plan. Not sure where it was located. My father worked there in the 1940s and maybe early 1950s.

  4. Good catch there Mike. The Trolley Map of Portland shows a WA or Williams Avenue trolley coach with that very route.
