Help Us Out!

Here we see houses getting moved to make way for the construction of the Minnesota Freeway. In a previous post you helped us locate an intersection for a similar image. We know that this image was taken at N. Vancouver Avenue, but can anyone help us identify the cross street. The lack of landmarks in the photograph makes it difficult to pinpoint the location.

North Portland, 1962 – Help Us Out!

This image from the City of Portland land use files shows us a house being moved in North Portland. My guess this was part of the effort to build I-5 (Minnesota Freeway). Can anyone pinpoint this location? It’s possible some of the houses on both sides of the street still stand. Really sharp readers will be able to tell us where the moved house finally settled.

Found: N. Vancouver Ave. & Dekum St.
