SW 5th & Madison, 1965

Just a block east of the Congress Hotel photo from last week was this scene at SW 5th Avenue looking north from Madison. The Congress would have abutted the 5th Avenue Hotel seen here, and the Trailways/Airways Rent-a-Car building can be seen in both images. The Portland Building is now on the parking lot to our immediate right here with Multnomah County Courthouse just beyond that.
