Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Historic Photos of Portland captures the past through photographs from the city's finest archives. From the Civil War period, to the turn of the century, to the building of a modern metropolis, Historic Photos of Portland follows life, government, education, and events from Portland's history. This book captures unique and rare scenes through the original lens of about 200 historic photographs. Published in striking black and white photography, these images communicate historic events and every day life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.

Book News Annotation:

This collection features b&w photos of Portland, Oregon, from 1860 to the 1970s, tracing the city's development from before the Civil War to its rise as a metropolis and modern city. The photos give a sense of what has changed and what has survived over the years and how the city has evolved. Photos were drawn from city, state, and private archives and show different facets of life, from the people and places to commerce, transportation, infrastructure, and religious and educational institutions. There is no index. Nelson is a local Portland writer and researcher specializing in Portland history. He is the author of Progressive Portland--On the Move.
