Knights of Pythias

Pythian Building, 1907

Another fantastic old sign, or rather two of them, one on top of the other. "Shaw's Surgical Co." (Phone BR.3466) was partially covered by the later "Knights of Pythias." And very informative sign it was, telling you who they were (Great International Order based on Friendship), a bit of history (Founded in 1864), and a full schedule (Ivanhoe Lodge No. 1 - Tuesdays 8 P.M.).

If you're looking at the "Professional Building" (my previous post) from the parking structure at SW 10th and Yamhill (southwest corner), turn left and look south across Yamhill. You have to be on the upper floors if the trees are in bloom or the view will be blocked.
