Portland, Oregon, has a rich history as illustrated by these terrific photos. The goal of Vintage Portland is to document some of the city’s past through photographs, postcards, illustrations, advertisements, etc. I’m drawing on a number of sources for these images and attribution is posted under each photo. This is a personal, non-commercial venture. Vintage Portland is not affiliated with any organization.
This blog will be short on text and long on photos. It’s not a history lesson, it’s not an architectural critique. It’s a forum for displaying photos of the city’s past, to show how we lived, what we’ve lost (for good or bad) through progress and just to enjoy some wonderful camera work.
