Portland Memories: The Early Years – A pictorial history

The Oregonian/OregonLive has worked with Pediment publishers to create a collector’s book featuring memories of Portland from the late 1800s through 1939 in stunning historic photographs. This heirloom-quality coffee-table book features over 70 images from the City of Portland Archives’ collections, as well as photos contributed by members of the Vintage Portland community, and other collections in the area. This hardcover book captures the rich visual heritage of Portland and you can learn more about the book and pre-order by clicking here.

  1. 1910 Portland City Directory: Schmitt & Wells (John G. Schmitt – Edward E. Wells) meats, 1005 Union Ave N.

  2. I’m fine with the Oregonian making money of this if it highlights the good work PARC does and inspires people to get interested in Portland history.

  3. Dang it: “off.”

    Maybe the Oregonian will see fit to take some of their proceeds and donate it to add an edit feature for Vintage Portland. 🙂

  4. 1005 Union doesn’t appear in the 1931 nenumbering guide because it must have been demolished before that. But it was on the west side of Union just south of the intersection with Wygant, in the 4700 block.
