I am looking for pictures of the Adrian Hotel that was taken down to rebuild the Morrison bridge in 1953. The hotel was located under the now existing bridge.
Apropos of vintage portland, Just plugged in my old adress from ’58 to ’63. 6029 se 44th The home had been owned by Mrs Savage and by the time my father bought the place there was only the widow Savage and her roommate. They seemed ancient and by that time lived exclusively upstairs even to having a kitchenette in the master bedroom. In the basement were jars and jars of apple and berry preserves dating from the 1920s. I plugged in the adress and up popped Charles F Savage jr. As an early amateur radio broadcaster… Plugged that name in and up popped that name associated with the sale of medical equiptment and chemicals. Intersting stuff. The house is long gone and that area near Woodstock blvd is completely re done
I am looking for old pictures of St Johns Neighborhood. Would love to see old Streetcar, Fessenden street etc
Love the site. Interested in any photos of City Grocery, at either location, on Broadway near Portland State.Or that area, around SW Montgomery/ Broadway – From 1940s through store closure in 1969.
Thanks to who ever posted the photos of St John’s Woods. We lived on Maple Leaf Drive. My family lived there for a few years when my father came back from WWII. I remember one time that some one brought ponies for the kids to ride. I presume we just got to go around in a circle. I must have been 3 or 4 years old. We move out to the Woodlawn neighborhood shortly before I started kindergarten at Woodlawn. Also remember riding the trolly cars in downtown Portland.
