NE Stanton & Williams, 1931

There are more people out on this suburban street than we are used to seeing, including a girl on roller skates on the far right. The view is west on NE Stanton at Williams, 1931. It’s a far different scene today but Dawson Park is still on the far right corner.

Eastbank Freeway Construction, 1962

This nifty aerial view shows the I-5 Eastbank Freeway construction through inner North  and Northeast Portland in 1962. In the upper right corner are NE Weidler and Broadway going east-west and Vancouver Avenue snaking across the construction on a temporary overpass. This view is to the southeast and another view of the same area can be seen here.

Portland Police Sunshine Division, 1938

The Portland Police Reserve was formed in 1922 by mayor George Baker as a  group of civilian volunteers to serve in emergency situations. They ended up responding mostly to widespread poverty, delivering food to citizens in need. They earned the name “George Baker’s Sunshine Boys” for the hope they brought. In 1938 they moved into this vacant precinct station at 39 N. Russell St.
