Nothing stops the march of time and the changes that happen around us. This photo taken in 1965 in Portland shows what used to be at this popular location 50 years ago. Do you know what's there now? 

 

The corner of Forest Avenue and Poland Street had a Flying A gas station back in 1965. This was back in the days where your gas was pumped for you by an attendant and they also checked your oil, tire pressure and washed your windows without you ever needing to get out of the car.

Today, the station is gone and in its place is a Starbucks. Behind the Starbucks you can see two buildings still standing today.
