1138 SE Madison St Portland Oregon - current location of AltSource Inc

This house didn't last long. The warehouse that stands there today was built in 1923. Recently remodeled into offices for AltSource Inc.

William Laidlaw house formerly on Belmont Street in Portland Oregon

Sadly the top is cropped off but this gives you a sense of the scale and grand presence the house once had. I am unsure of the date of it's demolition but the apartments that replaced it were built in 1976. Some of that wonderful basalt stone wall remain but not on the side facing Belmont.

3253 SE Taylor St in it's original form

The house survives pretty much as it was though someone removed the Ionic capitals and replaced them with a more craftsman top. Also some railing alterations. Taken before the construction of the house next door in 1923.

Early view of 4025 SE Yamhill St in Portland

A nice view of 4023 SE Yamhill Street. The house was built in 1906. Also a decent portion of it's neighbors (4017-4019 SE Yamhill and 4033 SE Yamhill). Wonderful cast concrete retaining wall which also still remains.

Another fun find. Pretty much the same today!
