This is a photograph by Davidson, made about 1888, of a painting by an unknown artist dating from about 1855. Davidson created a number of scenic boudoir cards that were photos of paintings from earlier decades.

By 1855, land has been cleared and homesteads established on the east side of the Willamette River, though nothing resembling East Portland has evolved yet. Note that Mt. Tabor, on the left, has already been partly cleared for agriculture. In Related Photos below you'll find an 1898 photo by Herbert Hale taken from the same vantage point.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
