Rocky Butte, circa 1948

Today we have an image of the Joseph Wood Hill Park, sent to us by David Lewis. This is an oblique aerial photograph of Rocky Butte, one of Portland’s most significant viewpoints. It is believed that this image was taken in June of 1948.

One wonders what has brought everyone to the summit. Possibly to view the flooding that took place that year. The view is looking southwest. Please click here for more information on the park.
