Albers Bros Milling Co, c1915

Albers Bros. Milling Co. and the Albers Docks were quite a complex along the western Willamette riverfront a century ago. The tall central structure with the grain silos is all that remains today. Although dated circa 1915, this illustration would have predated the 1913 Broadway Bridge which now skirts those silos as it crosses the river. The far north end of Union Station is at left and a very smoky industrial Northwest Portland stretches out beyond.
