Keep Portland Weird
a kind old handicapped man, if a bit troubled
Mr. Franklin is an old man who lives in the Willamette Towers, a rough but livable Section 8 housing apartment complex on the boarder of Piedmont and Woodlawn. Mr. Franklin is kind but timid and tends to keep to himself, but occasionally he attends events at The Center. Mr. Franklin is wheelchair bound, the result of some accident from his youth.
