    There's a light mounted on the roof, too. Either some sort of local police or a fire department officer (chief, ast. chief, etc.)

    i
    I wonder what is going on in the couple of photos with the corner hardware and the boarded up market. There is debris in the street in both pictures. Most of the cars are older with the exception of the 55-6 Packard. Note the cop headed for the stores. Maybe a fire or vehicle damage to the stores??

    The Portland Oregon Armory.
    Man did I think this cool when I was a kid! I imagined it it full of cool weapons and military stuff.
    It was also the home of wrestling!
