We’ve seen this area several times before but never from this unique aerial perspective. We’re looking north on SW 18th Avenue with SW Morrison at the bottom and W Burnside at the top. It’s interesting to see the mid-lane parking on SW 18th; cars are parked facing both directions.
Traffic is heavy where W. Burnside meets SW 18th and 19th Avenues and Alder Street in this 1938 photo. Hard to tell what traffic control system they had in place at that time but it looks like all directions are on the move, including pedestrians. Part of Portland Firefighters Park can be seen on the left.
