Creston Park, 1935

If you couldn’t be in the Creston Park swimming pool on this nice August day in 1935, seeking shade under a tree was an alternative way to stay cool. This view is roughly northeast; Creston School was on the south side of Powell Blvd, at about 47th Avenue.

Sellwood Park Swimming Pool, 1935

A warm August day in 1935 filled the Sellwood Park swimming pool with neighborhood kids. Except for the greater number of trees now, the scene looks much the same today. Enjoy your warm August weekend!
