Mocks Bottom Barracks, circa 1945

An aerial view of Mocks Bottom barracks and the area near N Willamette Boulevard, N Killingsworth Street and N Greeley Avenue, circa 1945. Notice the building at the northeast corner of N Greeley Avenue and N Killingsworth Street – it was designed to accommodate the curve needed for the streetcar route. This route was no longer in use by the time this photo was taken, and the Bess Kaiser Hospital had not yet been built.
