NW Lovejoy Ramp, 1938

The old Lovejoy Street ramp once elevated NW Lovejoy over the railroad tracks from NW Broadway to NW 14th Avenue. The ramp was removed in the late 1990s and it now reaches grade at about NW 9th Avenue, and Lovejoy is a surface street. This 1938 view looks west down the ramp with NW 10th coming in from the left side.

Multnomah Block, 1943

We had previously seen the Multnomah Block from the other side, along SW Morrison Street, after the building suffered a 1941 fire. This photo, taken the same day, is of the opposite side. We look west on Burnside from NW 19th Ave. The Kingston Hotel is visible in the distance.
