Steel Bridge, January 1984

A bleak day back in January 1984 as old beaters and stray peds amble by on wood plank sidewalks. Gotta love that 35 “speed” sign. You could really haul ass back then. No pesky MAX or bikes to get in your way.

Love these pics. Almost doesnt seem like Portland, this no-mans land, a maze of lead paint, decaying ramps and worn down wood sidewalks.
