When Bob was born, they lived at 2514 NE Flanders in Portland.  Jane and I drove by Thursday after work, and found this view:


Here’s the house at 2514:


Looks like the same sidewalk heading around the corner of the house.  Not sure about that tree.

Bob and Mary Lou, back in the water.  I don’t recognize the river.

Not sure what year these are from.  Also, not sure about the pirates surrounding the fellas in dress whites!

img286aThis looks like the Junior Court?  And who’s that sitting up the light pole?

These are taken at the corner of SW Broadway and Madison, behind First Congregational Church.  This is where the Portland Center for the Performing Arts is now.  In the second photo you can see the side of what is now the Schnitzer.

This is probably the late 50’s, maybe early 60’s?  I’ll have to check and see what year Grandpa started taking slides.  Those are all dated . . . something for you to look forward to!

This picture of Reba says its from April 1957, right after I was born.  That’s quite the grin!

That looks like Dick being licked to death before he can subdue the wild beast!


Something has caught Bob’s attention!  Any idea who that is standing next to your sister?
