Associated Service Station, 1938

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.

NW 6th and Irving, 1948

We get another view of the 1948 flood in this shot looking southeast through the Union Station parking lot. At the far end is the corner of NW 6th and Irving where a temporary dike has been built. Beyond the Boyd Hotel on the right is the better-remembered Hoyt Hotel. The only building in this picture left standing is the Hunt Transfer and Storage building on Glisan between 3rd and 4th. See another flood-related photo of this area in this earlier post.
