Lewis and Clark Exposition, 1905

In previous post we saw a wonderful map, an illustration, and a beautiful hand tinted photograph of the Lewis and Clark Exposition. Today we are looking at a photograph from the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition Esplanade taken in 1905. The Exposition was located in the Northwest Portland/Guild’s Lake area.

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.
