SE Bybee Blvd Overpass, 1934

The SE Bybee Blvd. overpass over SE McLoughlin Blvd. is shown here undergoing construction work in 1934. Rails for the Sellwood and Eastmoreland trolley lines can be seen in the foreground and in the distance to the west. Were they being replaced by the new trolley buses at this time?

SE Division & McLoughlin Blvd, 1947

We start the week with a terrific aerial view looking down on SE McLoughlin Blvd. where it crossed over SE Division St. in 1947. The old Inman, Poulsen Lumber Co. sawmill covers much of the lower right side of the image, stretching down to the Ross Island Bridge. The Consolidated Dairy Products plant and the Portland Coke & Gas Co. storage tanks can be seen farther inland. Recent realignment of the McLoughlin/MLK overpass allows the new Oregon Rail Heritage Center to sit just north of the extant Inman Poulsen office at photo center.
