E Burnside Street, 1978

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 Sheriff’s Office photograph shows the remains of United Flight 173 which crashed across E Burnside on December 28th, 1978. The tail of the plane is at about 15809 E Burnside.
