East Ankeny Trolley Barn.

Before the Great Depression Portland had the nations third largest narrow-gauge street car system. These trolleys had to go somewhere night, in form of large garages called "car barns." As best as I can figure, SE Ankeny between 26th & 28th Avenues was the location of the East Ankeny trolley barn.

Today this is the large lot where Esparzas is.

See where on PDX's Historical Trolley Lines.
