Multcolib Holgate Picks: Explore Portland History
Annotation:For little history buffs: A small terrier with a taste for adventure explores our area’s history and geography, going to the Rose Gardens, the Oregon Food Bank, the Gorge, and, of course, Powell’s.
Annotation:At the turn of the last century, we had the second-largest Chinese population in the U.S. This scholarly work provides an important chapter in our social history.
Annotation:Portland’s own "People’s History", carefully researched and unabashedly left-leaning.
Annotation:Three volumes from 1911. A great city deserves a long title! Library use only.
