For years I've been looking for a photo of Bill's Gold Coin. Today my advance copy of Phil Stanford's latest book arrived in the mail and there it is on page 12! This was a hot spot and big mobster hangout in Stumptown. Looking forward to starting this book tonight.
The Perry Pharmacy in Milwaukie was old school with a great soda fountain that served a cup of Joe for .05 cents. Perry Pharmacy opened in 1914 and for decades it was the meeting place before Starbucks. The pharmacy closed in 1998 after an 84 year run.
