While the area between NW 12th and 14th streets were primarily warehouses and transfer and storage companies, the area between 9th and 12th was the home to many shops catering to the trucking and automotive industry. As motorized transport replaced horses, auto body shops, engine rebuilders and bearing shops were quite common sights.

This "Bearings" sign on NW 10th between Davis and Everett came close to being covered during a building repaint. Someone stopped this painter just in time.
