There are some nice details to be found in this 1939 aerial looking down on Washington Park. The Rose Garden and reservoirs are evident in center. Canyon Road snakes down to Goose Hollow under the Vista Avenue Viaduct on the left. It appears the old Portland Railway, Light & Power Company’s building was still on the southwest corner of 23rd and Burnside. Enjoy!
This aerial view is of the Goose Hollow area in 1947. The view is to the northeast with SW Jefferson St. leading to and from Canyon Road winding under the Vista Avenue Viaduct and Multnomah Stadium in the upper left.
