 Lloyd Center Ghosts

The East mall was flanked by JC Penny and Woolworth's. One could walk between the two buildings through a breezeway that opened up into the courtyard. 



In 1990 the mall was enclosed but ghosts of it's former MCM self still survive. Currently Sears occupies the space that was once JC Penny and Marshalls is where Woolworth's resided. Between the two you can still see remnants of the hanging plants that allowed light and fresh air to the underground parking level below. 


Gateway Arch

The Gateway Shopping Center was built in 1952 at NE 102nd and Halsey. The concrete arch was added in 1954. It was located at the site of the present day Applebee's on Halsey. It was demolished in the 1990s when the Shopping Center was razed to build a new Fred Meyer complex.



JJ Newberry's LLoyd Center

Here are a few leftover signs of the famous five and dime at LLoyd Center. Newberry's is now a Dollar Store but if you go down into the parking garage you can see what it used to be. Terazzo  floor and rotating window display platform!


Here is a postcard of Newberry's in the early 1960s just how I remember it.

This framed 8×10 photograph was found at Salvation Army in Vancouver, WA. It is a photo of the Raliegh Hills branch of Portland Federal Savings taken sometime in the late 1950s.

After further research it was found that the building still stands at 4770 SW 76th Portland, OR 97225 and
now  Washington Federal Savings with no semblance of it's former MCM glory.
Washington Federal Savings
Zim's was in operation by the Zimmerman familiy since the 1930s. The famous rotating neon starburst sign was a beacon at 223rd and Stark called "12 Mile Corner" until early 2007 when it was demolished to become Weston Kia. The sign is said to remain with the Zimmerman family.
