Portland Community College Cascade Campus, circa 1969

August 27, 2014

Here we have an excellent aerial of what is now Portland Community College’s Cascade Campus located on N Killingsworth Street. The school began as a small Christian College which transferred its holdings to the entity that created PCC. The campus has transformed and expanded over the years since this photograph was taken, circa 1969. In the lower left corner you can see the Jefferson High School football field, and to the right of the field, the Multnomah County Library North Portland branch. In the upper left of the image you can see Ockley Green School and the defunct streetcar barns near N Jessup. In the upper right you can see the Peninsula Park Rose Garden.

Help Us Out!

July 25, 2014

Here we see houses getting moved to make way for the construction of the Minnesota Freeway. In a previous post you helped us locate an intersection for a similar image. We know that this image was taken at N. Vancouver Avenue, but can anyone help us identify the cross street. The lack of landmarks in the photograph makes it difficult to pinpoint the location.

Japanese Garden, 1969

July 8, 2014

Yesterday I posted an image of the bear den that once stood where the Japanese Garden is now sited. Today we have an image of the Japanese Garden taken June 30, 1969. The garden spans over five and a half acres, and has five different garden styles. This image was part of the Annual Fiscal Report of the City Auditor in 1969.

The eastbound tunnel through Vista Ridge is complete and carrying traffic in this 1969 aerial photo. The westbound tunnel would be completed the following year. This is the city-side view, looking west.

Portland Aerial View, 1963

March 13, 2014

Here’s a pretty aerial view of Southwest and Southeast Portland along the Willamette in 1963. The Marquam Bridge was still under construction and both banks of the river were generally much more industrialized than they are now. Lots of good detail to soak up in this beauty.
