Victorian remodel in 1952 of 1130 SE 30th Ave Portland, OR

The photos do all of the talking. Turret and wrap around porch removed in this early 50's remodel. Today the house remains almost exactly as it does in this last color photo dated OCT 1952. The missing turret explains the unusual 2nd floor windows. Original 1904 chimney and outline of the 3rd floor retained. Note the unusual double column capital in photo 1. Very sad loss but it was the times.....

  1. Awesome find Chris, right around the corner from my house and I've always wondered what this house looked like before it was "improved." A great example of how there is often a big Victorian house at the top of every little hill in SE Portland.
