One couldn’t blame our Number Man for stopping into the corner grocery store for a little refreshment while on the job. Number 225 documented the southwest corner of Union Avenue at Morris Street.
Another dramatic view of the 1938 grand opening of the Associated service station (selling Flying A premium gasoline) at W Burnside and SW Broadway. Mike Slama contributed this beauty, a companion piece to his first image of the same event.
Here’s a spectacular professional photo of what is probably the grand opening of the Associated service station downtown. This business replaced the Scott Hotel at SW Broadway and W Burnside; our view looks north from Pine Street. This photo comes to us courtesy of VP fan Mike Slama whose friend found a stash of negatives in the old Photo Art lab building. Score!
