Nice pic! I spy the old Astor Park nightclub down on 5th & Lenora next to the Monorail. I believe it was called the Trojan Horse in those days. Now just an empty lot across from the Palace Kitchen…
What year was this picture taken, do you know? Regarding the lot across from the Palace Kitchen, the Warwick Hotel is now right west across the alley from that lot and it’s been there for a long, long time and it is not in this picture (corner of 4th & Lenora). And neither is the 4th and Blanchard “Darth Vader” building. I remember that this area had a lot of parking lots in the 1960s & 1970s (area around the Cinerama Theater).
The Jackson Federal Building was completed in 1974, and it looks occupied here. The Rainier Tower was under construction by 1975, I believe, and I don’t see signs of it here, in fact, it looks like the building north of the Olympic Hotel is not yet demolished to make way for it.
I’d say this picture was taken in ’74.
I agree with 1974. The Pacific Northwest Bell headquarters on 7th and Olive, which opened in 1976, is nowhere in the picture, either; and its construction would probably have shown up on the far left side of the picture in 1975.
