Barbur Blvd @ Capitol Hwy

Here we have a shot just out front of the Barbur Transit Center in 1986. I did a quick search to see if I could get any dirt on Barbur Foods located at 9845 SW Barbur Blvd., across the street. Not a lot of mentions turned up. But apparently a guy in shorts robbed the market in 1987. In 2004 the store was purchased by a Lebanese couple and rebranded Barbur World Foods and shifted focus on specialty foods.

  1. This was a Piggly Wiggly. If you go inside the store there are pictures of it back in the day. There was a Texaco right next to it years ago. This side of town has changed so much. Plush Pippen, Dunkin Dounuts and The original Taco Johns off Capitol. No pictures of them anywhere. If someone has pics of SW Portland, not downtown. Please post or submit them.
