What a wonderful example of winter fashion from this time period! Here we have five girls playing in the snow in the Park Block area. This image was taken circa 1890.
Here we have an excellent view of the floating Fireboat 3 Station when it was located at the St. Johns Bridge. In this view, we are looking northeast, towards St. Johns. In the background you can see the building that is now the Portland Police Bureau: Training Division building. Three identical fireboats, built in the late 1920s, were located near the Hawthorne Bridge (Fireboat 1, Mike Laudenklos), in lower Albina (Fireboat 2, David Campbell) and in various locations in St. Johns area (Fireboat 3, Karl Gunster). The David Campbell is still active today as a reserve fireboat and is located at Station 6 in Northwest Portland near Front Ave.
