Do you remember when Robert F Kennedy visited a market parking lot in SE Portland Oregon in June of 1968?
I was there! I begged my Mom to take me out of school to see him speak. Did he speak at the site where Mall 205 now stands?. Between SE Stark and Washington streets…? Documents show the mall that stands there now (Mall 205) was built in 1970, but there certainly could have been a store (s) there before. At the time I was in the 5th Grade at St. Thomas More. So, I was way out of my element that far into the east side of Portland. After he spoke I believe he made a side trip down SE Hawthorne. I've seen the photographs of him on Hawthorne. They are inside Nick's Coney Island, on Hawthorne. I am sure though that my Mom had me back in class before the school day was over. Anyway, I still have the Kennedy bumper sticker and buttons!
