Fan Mail: Vintage Portland
Just a quick plug for perhaps my favorite blog of all: Vintage Portland. The blog is simple, it finds and publishes historic photos of Portland.
I love historic pictures, especially of the place I call home. Portland is a very young city with a very recent and very present history. I remember watching the log rafts float on the Willamette when I was a kid, and though I realize I am comfortably middle aged now, it feel not so long ago to me in years but so distant in memory.
Which is why I am often mesmerized by historic photos and enjoy looking at them so much. This city has evolved but it is still a town built on timber and the river. Go take a look.
