This is the Portland Hotel. It stood where Pioneer Courthouse Square is today. It was the coolest building in Portland for a long time... But... It was financially unstable from the very beginning and was torn down in the 50's to be a parking lot for the bustling downtown department store.  Whidden & Lewis was the Architect. They also did the courthouse across the street and City Hall. In 1980 a meeting of the (great postmodern) minds had a design competition that gave us the pioneer square we know and love today.
