Overview

By the mid nineteenth century, the city of Portland was a vibrant cultural center of the West. Through the late 1800s, two world wars, and into the modern era, Portland has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens. With a selection of fine historic images from his bestselling book Historic Photos of Portland, Donald R. Nelson provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Portland. This volume, Remembering Portland, captures this journey through still photography from the finest archives of city, state, and private collections. From the Civil War to the end of the nineteenth century and to the building of a modern metropolis, Remembering Portland follows life, government, education, and events throughout Portland’s history. The book captures unique and rare scenes through the original lens of more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
