Ladder Truck #4 - Portland, Oregon
I found this photo on ebay. The seller said he was told by a historian that this photo was taken in front of 302 SE 3rd Ave. That would put this at the intersection of SE 3rd and Pine. The building in the background at right looks like it might have cast iron elements but it does have wood clapboard siding on the side so I'm not really sure that that was done. My book about cast iron architecture in Portland does not have any examples of East Portland cast iron which is unfortunate as there are some stunning examples in existence today which of course leads me to believe there were lots more in the past. Suggestions welcome.
