County Fair Racetrack, circa 1935

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.

The old county fair racetrack was located in what is now Town Fair Center, just east of Eastman Parkway in Gresham, circa 1935.
