North Williams and Russell Street in Portland, Oregon. Photo taken if 1962. Williams and Russell streets, shown here in 1962, were at the heart of Portland’s Albina district, the home of numerous jazz clubs. The district was wiped out by construction of I-5, the Memorial Coliseum and a plan to expand Emanuel Hospital that ran out of money after the land was cleared.
