Tigard Feed & Garden Store


A color photograph of a rectangular building, one and one half stories high, with a gabled roof covered with corrugated tin. The building is clad with light-blue colored tongue and groove siding. A shed roof porch, supported by three square posts, stretched across three-quarters of front facade. Side stairs lead to the porch. Above the porch is a large red and white sign labeled 'Carnation Feed'. Two smaller 'Carnation Feed' sign are located near the building's right-front corner facade and the side facade. 'Tigard Feed & Garden' is written along the side facade, partially obscured by a passing train. Train tracks and a green Burlington Northern locomotive run along the side of the building. A sign by the tracks on the left edge of the photograph reads 'Tigard.' The Tigard Feed and Garden Store was built in 1924 by August Schubring and operated by his partner Wilbur Biederman as an adjunct to their existing grocery store on Main Street.
