The Boston Packing Co. was once situated on the improbably small triangular block bounded by SW 3rd Avenue and Ash and Ankeny Streets. The Multnomah Hotel is just off camera to the left. This building can be seen in the distance in this previous Vintage Portland post. The Union Gas station visible in the distance can also be seen in this post.
There’s lots of great detail in this 1928 photo of the southeast corner of West Burnside at 4th Avenue. The Hirsch-Weis building still stands as part of Dante’s and the Multnomah Hotel (now Embassy Suites) looms in the background.
