Wonderfully preserved 4124 SE Yamhill Street in Portland

I've always admired this house and I walked past it quite often on my route to the mail box by St Stephens and the bank. At an estate sale today there was a pile of old photo post cards for $1 each. I figured it was cool and it sure looked like that house. Well it was! The owners recently stripped off all of it's fake siding and the house is SPECTACULAR!!!!  I'll add an after shot the next time the weather is nice.

The original house that was Jarra's Ethopian Restaurant and is now the Langano Apartments

I bought this at a local estate sale and just had a feeling it was Portland. I could make out the original address which was 591. Fortunately there is a key word searchable database where you can plug it in and get the current post 1930's address. Less than 10 address into my search I was able to determine that this house was formerly 591 E Hawthorne Avenue. It was changed to 1435 SE Hawthorne Blvd. Compare those brackets, windows, and chimneys and you've got it! Razed for the Langano Apartments but heavily altered before that.

The cabinet photo is mine and the other images are Google street view.
