NE Broadway & 9th, 1929

This fine old house was being documented by the city for some unknown reason in 1929. We do know that it no longer sits on the southeast corner of  NE Broadway and 9th Avenue, but it looks like its neighbor to the south fared better.

NW 9th & Johnson, 1936

Remarkably unchanged in 75 years, this view is south on NW 9th from Johnson Street. What’s known today as the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center, the building on the right was called Central Truck Terminal in 1936.
