Navy ships pause near the Portland Public Market in August, 1936. Opened in late 1933, it was at the time the world's largest public and farmer's market. While it's easy to assume we are in Rose Festival season, this photo was actually taken a few months later. The Portland Public Market was an ambitious undertaking, and never really achieved profitability. In 1948 the building became the production facility for the Oregon Journal newspaper. In 1969 it was demolished to make way for Waterfront Park.
