SE Stark Street, 1959

Oregon is home to many archives, most rich with collections documenting Oregon’s history. In order to highlight some of these collections containing Portland-area images, Vintage Portland has invited photo submissions from other archives within the region. Today’s photo and text is provided by the Multnomah County Archives.

This picture was taken in 1959 as part of the County Road Department’s project documentation activities. The Silver Spur was located at 9409 SE Stark Street, which is currently at the off ramp for southbound Interstate 205.
