Vista Avenue Viaduct, 1930

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 1930 photograph from the Multnomah County Road Services Project Records shows a bus heading west on the recently paved Canyon Road toward the Vista Avenue Viaduct.
