Where Does the Time Go?

Astoria, Oregon ~ Summer 2011
Guest Photographer: J Schu

Hello, Everyone! The title of today's post could be a theme for this photo, and it's also a theme for me right now. Contrary to possible conclusions, I have not decided to give up on this blog, but I have (by default) taken a break from all of my blogs. I think about posting, I still take photos, and I really, really appreciate the interest all of you have shown. Rather than lack of interest, I can sum up my disappearance as "other things coming to the foreground," and everthing simply takes time.

We'll see what happens going forward, but for now I would like to thank J for sending in this charming photo of a view that was not available until very recently, and to pass along a question from the photographer: Can anyone tell us more about this old building? It was revealed recently along the River Walk when the weathered old white Darigold building was taken down.

For some reason this comment from Priscilla Joan Hillard Parker would not post. Here it is:

"On 8th Street my Grandfather Emil Palmberg owned the big Store it was called Palmberg Merchantile. Also across the Street was My Grandmother Marie Palmberg and Grandfather's house and His Gas Station on the Corner and next to the House was my Grandmother's little store."

Hi Sheryl! I know exactly how you feel...I'm back for awhile and will post for awhile, but...well, we'll see.

Hope you are well and your business is booming.

This is a wonderful old building and I hope it will not be destroyed...

Francisca said...

Great that you got your answer, Sheryl. And it's a neat building. Talk soon... :-)

Looks to me, after going around to the other side, that it's just storage for City Lumber Company.

Wonder what its original use was, but I'm guessing probably storage for rail transport. The large doors are similar on both sides of the building. The side facing the Riverwalk is close to the railroad tracks, which would make loading and unloading easy.

It is the back of City Lumber. The doors were used for unloading railroad cars off the short spur.
