If you’re interested in Portland’s history, and fond of vintage photos, the blogs Cafe Unknown and Lost Oregon are probably already familiar to you. You’ve probably also perused the fantastic archive of post cards and ephemera at PdxHistory.com. But you may not yet be aware of another photo-rich Portland history blog, the nascent Vintage Portland: Exploring Portland’s Past.
Created by the author of another blog that features images that speak to the history of the Rose City, Portland Building Ads, Vintage Portland‘s stated goal is to document some of the city’s past through photographs, postcards, illustrations, advertisements, etc.
The inaugural post on November 19th features a 1917 photo of the North Bank Passenger Station, a building that still stands today at NW 11th and Hoyt.
It’s an excellent blog, with something for almost everyone: the historian, the detective, the student of architecture, and the amateur aficionado of vintage Portland.
