Portsmouth Station

Steam railroads first provided local area service. This is a line that was put on MLK Blvd that ran to Woodlawn and the ferry to Vancouver. This is the Portsmouth area. What you see here is the station and also a lookout point. There was a real estate subdivision here. On Sunday, real estate agents would give people free tickets to come here, take them up to the lookout, and sell them a lot. The transportation system is being subsidized by the selling of real estate.
