Dang, I think I wish I'd seen that when I was in Portland. It actually looks pretty neat - something of a throwback to the 1930's Art Deco style diners (though using different materials and color palettes, obviously), which given its current use seems oddly fitting.


These shelters are a lot more 'historic' than they seem being only 32-33 years old. They perfectly represent and capture the spirit of the 1970s rebirth of downtown Portland and the paradigm shift in Portland to livable communities. I personally wanted one to go to OHS for their plaza on the South Park Blocks.

This coffee-shop shelter still has its old maps circa 2006 and I believe the old quadrant symbols (snowflake, beaver, raindrop, etc) for buses to SW, SE, N, NE, etc. I dont recall if it even still has the old TV monitors that posted schedules.

What exactly were these for?

Thanks Mr. Walker for your educational site. I'm from Los Angeles have recently become a strong supporter of transit (though I haven't been on a bus in LA since I was 16! I really should go see our subway for myself.)
