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 Transportation Division photo is of the county road crew trucks, probably located at the Rocky Butte Shops ca. 1920’s.
