There’s just so much to love about this 1912 photo taken of Portland and Mt. Hood from the west hills, maybe Pittock Mansion. St. Francis Catholic Church (from Wednesday’s post) is unmistakeable at upper left, while the old Washington High School sits just to its south. The old Blitz Weinhard brewery is on Burnside, Portland High School is visible on SW Morrison, and a pre-PGE Park athletic field is in the foreground. You can see the steel frame of the Benson Hotel under construction too. Fabulous detail for a photo of this vintage.
