View of the Rose Quarter before the Memorial Coliseum

Here's a nice reminder from "Vintage Portland" that NE Portland used to be mixed use with shops and houses all the way from the river to 16th Ave. Then we tore them down to build Lloyd Center and expand "downtown".  
Dan Davis writes: "bird's-eye view of N. Broadway between N. Interstate at the bottom and N. Wheeler at the top. There was no shortage of gas stations in this area. A few of the major buildings are still standing but not a single house is left today.
