Before & After: NW 5th Ave @ Hoyt, 1978

This shot looking North along 5th Ave near Hoyt serves as yet another stunning example of how far we have come as a city and specifically, the improvements in Old Town. A picture from the same location from 2016 looks like a socialist utopia while in 1978 it was nothing but a harsh collage of underutilized industrial buildings. Four years prior, Union Station had been added to the National Register of Historic Places, making official the city of Portland landmark status conferred  to it in 1970. The steam plant/storage building pictured at center was given the same designation in 1989, ensuring the integrity of the complex.
