Transportation Division, circa 1920

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.

  1. Curtain cab, chain drive, hard rubber tires, johnston bar brakes, armstrong power steering acetylene lights, square cut gears and a seat bolted to the frame. I’ll tell you boys, you had to be tough.
