Sellwood Carbarn, 1913

Workers at the Portland Railway, Light and Power Sellwood Division carbarn pose in front of the Oregon City and Estacada trolley cars. The Sellwood carbarn was at SE 13th Avenue just south of Linn Street. Thanks to Gary Kyle for sending this photo from his personal collection; the man standing at far right, 2nd row (in white shirt, brimmed hat and overalls) was his grandfather.

Burnside Trolley Barn, c1980

This nice old brick trolley car barn is one of two that stood side-by-side between E. Burnside and NE Couch just west of NE 28th Avenue. It’s unknown when the eastern building was torn down but this one is still in use as an office building. They were part of the Portland Traction Company’s car barn and “trackless trolley bus yard” complex. This view is from Burnside looking north.
