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.
NOTE: Except in a few rare cases where I use my own photographs, I do not own the rights to these images. If you wish to use any images you see here, please visit the website of the source cited under each image for their particular usage rules and restrictions.
