NE Broadway & 33rd, 1953

This 1953 photo shows NE Broadway looking east west at 33rd Ave. It’s looking in the opposite direction as the one featured here from the same year (and probably the same day). The Albina Fuel company is again shown here, as well as a Kelly Tire store, both long gone from here.

N Vancouver & Fremont, 1937

Richfield and Gilmore service stations once adroned two of the corners at N. Vancouver Ave. and Fremont Street. I wonder if Webb’s “The Tavern” was actually in the Richfield station.

W Burnside & SW 8th, 1928

This is a 1928 photo of the southeast corner of W Burnside and SW 8th Avenue. During the Burnside widening project in the early 1930s, this building lost approximately 20 feet from its Burnside face (on the left), leaving just one window panel in that first bay. It was built in 1910 as the Lowengart Building, renamed the Rothchild Building in 1934, and it’s now known as the Mark O. Hatfield Building. The Sunset Tire Co. would eventually move a block east to the site of the former Scott Hotel (see yesterday’s post comments).
