This early overview of Portland shows both sides of the Willamette, shortly before electric power lines began to line city streets. About a third of the way up are the Park Blocks, with their newly planted trees. Detail view 1 shows a large house under construction, which could likely be used to date this photo more accurately. Detail view 2 shows a sailing ship at the west side docks.
