The end of the block….

The block at the corner of SW Morrison and Park is being demolished today. What a site to see the former home of Virginia Cafe and Zell Bros reduced to a pile of rubble. And rather quickly. There are plenty of onlookers taking it all in. I can only imagine the memories those buildings hold for many a Portlander.

    My dad bought my mom’s engagement and wedding rings at Zell Bros.; I did likewise when I got married. Doctors Zell and Patton were our family optometrists for many years. It’s sad to see one more Portland icon gone.
