SE 39th Avenue, 1965

This pretty little scene on SE 39th Avenue serves to remind us that Spring does eventually get to Portland. The 1965 view is looking south from just north of SE Oak Ct.

NE Glisan & 39th, 1957

This scene at NE Glisan and 39th (now Cesar Chavez Blvd.) is not so much different today from what it was in 1957. Add a bus shelter and some traffic control lines and these kids are now in their 60s. Coe Circle with the golden Joan of Arc statue is just to our left here.
