Broadway and The Benson

I didn’t start my theme “Streetscapes of North America” for nothing, so here’s one from Portland. It shows Broadway, seen from the corner of West Burnside Street. Broadway runs straight through the centre of town in a north-south direction.

Seen in the background here is The Benson Hotel from 1912. It has got 287 rooms, making it the seventh largest hotel in Portland and it is said to be one of the best. It was built in Second Empire style.
