Portland Surgical Hospital

The building is lone gone but that a house it must have been at one time!!! This is from the 1920 Polk City Directory from Portland Oregon.

Pacific Coast Rescue and Protective Society

The original Albertina Kerr home for pregnant girls. Can't find much info on this structure other than what is found on a Albertina Kerr National Register of Historic Places application for a different 1925 brick structure. This ad says this building is on Barker Road between Sandy and Base Line (Stark) but the application says it 373 Cable Street. There's a VERY similar looking structure at 1829 SW Cable St but there's no way this was in SW Portland. A mystery!!!

Portland Nursery and Child's Hospital (Marcus Delahunt House) Portland OREGON 1920

I had no idea that the 1894 Marcus Delahunt House was also a hospital or should I say "hospital". Odd concept. Must be code for something else like depression or....

The Moore Sanitarium - Portland OR

Interesting "milk cure" offered at this hospital. I assume the original location was SE 28th and Alder. If so it does not survive.

Doctors Hart & Hart Maternity & Surgical Hospital in Portland Oregon

Wonderful advertisement from the 1920 Polk City Directory. The current address is 5211 N Williams and the home still stands. Today this 1904 home is the headquarters of the East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District.

Simple but interesting symmetrically placed porches.

I just love photos of old houses when they were new. Unknown location but possibly Portland OR.
