NE Sandy Blvd, 1952

The Hollywood Theater still stands on NE Sandy Blvd, as it has since 1926, but the building just west of it, at 41st Street, is gone. The Hollywood Building on the right was “modernized” at some time over the years and lost its graceful arched entryway.

Cambridge Block, 1955

The Cambridge Block was built in 1884 by Henry W. Corbett for $75,000. Architect Warren H. Williams incorporated many cast-iron design features from other Portland buildings, including Cooks’ Block. The Cambridge Block stood on the southwest corner of SW 3rd and Morrison until its demolition in 1962. You can find Pioneer Place there now.
