Portland Then/Now: The photos shown here display West Burnside Street and 18th Avenue in 1967 and 2014. The buildings may have stayed the same, but the shops have definitely changed. 

THEN: Galluci's, Derby Cleaners, a tavern and the (old) Ace Hotel ,which offered rooms from $3 to $5 dollars, were just some of the businesses that thrived along West Burnside Street in 1967.

The photo, taken during a road construction project, points east toward what in the not too distant future would become Portland's posh Pearl District.  

NOW: Sex shops, sushi and taverns dot the area today. The Ace Hotel no longer offers room for dirt cheap. There is another, newer Ace Hotel now located on Southwest Stark Street between 10th and 11th Avenue. 

And the Marathon Taverna has replaced Derby Cleaners.

Not far from this intersection the Timbers Army raises the roof at Providence Park and a Jaguar repair shop is just down the road from here. 

Speaking of "then" and "now, "everyone is invited to join the 4th Oregon Archives Crawl in celebration of Oregon Archives Month.  

Travel between the Portland Archives and Records Center, the Multnomah County Central Library and the Oregon Historical Society.  

At each location there will be a variety of activities to choose from so you might want to start early.
