We saw the Zeta Psi building (background) being demolished in a previous post. Further plans were afoot another block north on NW Front Street and our Number Man was on the scene to document the southwest corner at Everett Street.
There’s a lot of detail in this photo of a Portland that has mostly disappeared. This is SW 1st Avenue looking south; the first cross street is SW Stark. The Union Block is on our immediate right here (now the Robert Duncan Plaza) and across Stark is the Ladd & Tilton Bank.
