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 photograph is at NE 116th Avenue and NE Shaver Street from January 1950. This was the third snowiest month in Portland on record with nearly 33 inches of snow.
