Simon Building, C. 1907
Trees are growing up to obscure the view, but this building on the corner of NW 13th and Glisan is nicely restored and the signs are weathering well. Each floor had a painted band advertising products; restaurant, steamship & institutional supplies, and kitchen equipment, including silverware, glassware, sinks, dishwashers, mixers, choppers, waffle irons, toasters and slicers. 19th Century one-stop-shopping!
It's best viewed from the parking lot across NW 13th.
