This early portrait of Portland's City Hall was taken in the days of concrete sidewalks, electricity and streetcars, but before paved streets and automobiles. The building was only five years old at the time, having been completed in 1895.

It was one of the first large buildings in the Pacific Northwest to have electric wiring, central heating and public elevators. See Related Items below for a John F. Ford photo of Pioneer Courthouse, and a circa 1912 image of City Hall.
