    We moved out to S.W. Spring Garden St. just off of 14th street in 1955, from our apartment above City Grocery on Broadway downtown. I remember the Chuck Wagon and Mrs. Murphy’s. Barbur Blvd in that area is still a strange mix of old and new, seedy and upscale. My folks used to laugh about how Fred Meyer was considered a little crazy for building his Burlingame Fred Meyer store out in the “boonies” in 1950. I love Portland history.
