  1. That kid in the black turtleneck looks like a hipster of today. In fact, they all look like little hipsters… funny how styles come and go. Also, are those waxed paper bags on the shelf?

  2. The garment on the boy on the far left is like nothing I have ever seen before. Maybe because I normally watch for women’s clothes. What is it? Kind of a lined or padded garment with knit/sweatery cuffs at the collar and cuffs?

  3. Where are the pictures of Black kids and families of Vanport? I really enjoy Vintage Portland but it would be NICE to see older pictures of Black Portland in the areas in which they were redline to live in. Thanks.
