Washington Park Aerial, 1939

There are some nice details to be found in this 1939 aerial looking down on Washington Park. The Rose Garden and reservoirs are evident in center. Canyon Road snakes down to Goose Hollow under the Vista Avenue Viaduct on the left. It appears the old Portland Railway, Light & Power Company’s building was still on the southwest corner of 23rd and Burnside. Enjoy!
