Great comparison, I really like before and after photos and the chance to note the changes.

Very cool. Used to live in this neighborhood and I still take pictures of this view every Spring. Watch for my 2015 picture in the HRN's Panorama Special in April. Pretty sure Kirby has selected it for Favorite Pictures of the Year.

Wish I could move the old photo around like I can the Google Earth one.

Well, here we are on Catholic Hill. Back in my childhood days, I used to walk up this hill and turn at this corner to go to Park Street School.

Lived at 7th & June as a child, spent every winter sledding down this hill, big ditch on the east side & unpaved in the 50's & 60's. Walked my Mom Downtown on the deeply grooved sidewalk as she didn't drive.

Sledding on "Catholic Hill" was always a challenge when you got to Sherman Ave.

moved out to Belmont on "Vanport Flood Day" 1948 from our home at 701 Prospect.....yes, Catholic hill....tough to drive up on the gravel.

Catholic Hill was a big challenge for students in driver training, taught by Ocean Beach Patton. The car we learned in had a standard transmission, of course, avd Mr. Patton always had each student stop in the middle of the hillm(going up) and re-start the car. The clutch and accelerator had to be very carefully synchronized, and gravity wasn't on the driver's side. Judy Mohr was in my driving group, and while I was grinding the gears and slipping backwards, she would lean over my shoulder and whisper, "Find your friction point.."
