Forestry Building, c1910

An unusually highly detailed look at the Forestry Building following the Lewis & Clark Exposition of 1905. This view is looking north; that’s likely a bit of the Oriental Palace showing in the background. Thanks to Scott Smith for pointing out this image, courtesy of The Field Museum.

Lewis & Clark Exposition Map, 1905

Official ground plan of the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition in the Northwest Portland/Guild’s Lake area. Guild’s Lake was completely filled in by the 1920s and very little remains of the exposition itself. Very cool map, lots of detail, very informative.
