Visit Portland, Oregon, the "Rose City," as it was in days gone by. Over 380 vintage hand-tinted and black and white postcards from the 1900s to the 1950s take readers on a nostalgic visual tour that includes City Hall, Council Crest Amusement Park, Union Train Depot, and the famous Rose Parade. Admire the churches, hotels, and rose-festooned neighborhoods as they appeared early in the last century. Hop in your car for daytrips, admiring the countryside, including imposing views of Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens. Meander by the harbor as it appeared in yesteryear, or relax in Portland's city park, and linger in the Sunken Rose Garden. Finally, follow the crowd to the 1905 Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition and marvel at The World's Largest Log Cabin!
