Astoria, Oregon, ~ January 31, 2012
It seems you can always find scaffolding on one or two of the buildings around Astoria. Buildings need maintenance, and maybe especially in damp climates. One of the buildings I posted last November finally had it scaffold removed to expose its beautiful new exterior. Recently I noticed this scaffolding on the side of the Shallon Winery. What will we see when it finally comes down? New paint? A mural? In Astoria, one never knows.
You can't tell from this angle, but the street entrance to this building is halfway up its height on the other side, on Duane Street. Street level is the top floor, which is not too surprising in Astoria, but may seem unusual to people who live in flat country. The second photo in this post will show you some of Astoria's unique and famous construction.
