SE 20th & Belmont, 1931

There’s an auto-related business on the northeast corner of SE 20th Avenue and Belmont Street today. Yesterday’s post showed there was one there in 1965, and today’s post shows there was one there in 1931 also. It might even be the same building still standing. The crew doing the sewer repair here seems to be doing it with a dusting of snow on the ground.

NW 6th Ave & Burnside, 1931

A terrific view south on NW 6th Avenue where it crosses the pre-widened West Burnside in 1931. Lots of great signage and advertising in this photo, too. Both the Commonwealth and Arata buildings can be seen in these earlier photos.
