Civic Stadium, circa 1974

Interior view of Civic Stadium during a Mavericks game, circa 1974. Since the time of this image the stadium has changed names three times: PGE Park (2001-2010), Jeld Wen Field (2011-2014) and Providence Park (2010-present). Before the stadium was known as Civic Stadium it was known as Multnomah Field (1893-1926) and Multnomah Stadium (1926-1965).

West Burnside, 1947

This is a fairly well-detailed aerial photo from 1947. West Burnside cuts through the center from about 22nd Avenue at the bottom to 10th at the top. This was before I-405 sliced through Portland and gives a decent view of a few of the blocks that were lost. Multnomah Stadium (Civic Stadium/PGE Park) is prominent on the right.
