B.P. John Furniture - The plant was located on the east side of SW Macadam across from the current John's Landing. John's Landing was named for B. P. John and was the "landing" where the logs for the factory were dropped. B.P. John was originally a vice president at Doernbecher Furniture before starting his own business.
A book has been written by Kathryn Hurd on the life of B.P. John titled ?Bruno Paul John: An Oregon Legacy?. B.P. John was a German immigrant furniture manufacturing entrepreneur. Many Germans from Russia worked at the B.P. John
furniture manufacturing plant on Macadam Avenue in southwest Portland (now known as the John?s Landing area) or purchased homes from him in NE Portland.
