Then and Now – Sip D’Vine

This summer we did a series of “Then and Now” posters for Multnomah businesses. The posters features a vintage image of the building housing the business, a small inset image of the current facade, and a brief history of the building. Over the next several weeks we’re going to publish the images and an expanded version of the histories here. This week’s “Then and Now” is Sip D’vine.

Other businesses at this address were Annie Bloom’s Books, Vintage Corner, Artemisia, and a sister store to Hippo Hardware, ”Holding and Fondling Co”.
