Delta Stadium, 1963

Oregon is home to many archives, most rich with collections documenting Oregon’s history. In order to highlight some of these collections containing Portland-area images, Vintage Portland has invited photo submissions from other archives within the region. Today’s photo and text is provided by the Multnomah County Archives.
This 1963 artist concept shows the proposed Delta Dome. It was planned as a professional football and baseball stadium located in what is now Delta Park. Bond-based funding was rejected by voters in 1964.
