Apparently, starting in 1909 there was an Alberta streetcar line that ran to this area—that's probably the tracks seen on the left of the photo. Then in 1949, the line was converted to a bus route.

    Excellent! Thanks for posting this. Where did you find it?

    I run a blog about Alameda and other Northeast Portland neighborhoods (www.alamedahistory.org) and am always on the lookout for historic views of this area.

    I am a member at OHS and have gleaned through their public photo files of NE Portland neighborhoods...not much there.

    Thanks again for posting this!
