City Hall was over 10 years old when this image was taken. 100+ years later it looks remarkably the same. This view is southwest from SW 4th and Madison.

Last wednesday’s aerial photo of North Portland showed a tiny sliver of Vanport in the upper left edge. Here’s another sliver of the same area, closer and from a different perspective. This photo looks southwest at the Denver Avenue entrance to the housing development for wartime shipyard workers. Today there’s a small rise in the area just to the right of the start of the main straightaway at Portland International Raceway; the water tower once stood about there.
