Wild Rose Brand

Modern Confectionery Building, 1907

I had previously featured the Modern Confectionery building but had failed to see the small items flanking the second floor windows. Though extremely faded, I was able to determine that these were logos for "Wild Rose Brand Pure Lard." It was also painted on the band above the second floor windows, probably before "Modern Confectionery" was painted over it; the word "Lard" can still be seen to the far right.

You can see this from the corner of NW 13th and Hoyt.

Here is a detailed history of the Carton Services Studios from the Portland Art Studios website.
