The City of Portland Archives has this image in its land use files but the location is not noted. Somewhere along NE Alberta Street in 1962 is about all that’s known. Can anybody lead us to the location of this corner market? Is it still standing?
VP fan James Fossi worked at the old Alexander’s Chrysler at 2340 NE Sandy Blvd for 13 years. When Timberline Dodge bought the dealership, they threw away the photo albums. He’s asking if there are pictures of the old dealership. The closest I can come is this 1947 view of Sandy and 24th looking east. I think that would put the auto dealership in the building where the Willamette Builders’ Supply Co. sign is, just off the right edge.
This should be a familiar sight to anyone who’s passed by the intersection of SE Foster Rd. and 50th Avenue. The cars and businesses have changed but the buildings remain the same. All three buildings in this 1937 photo still remain.
