The ornate stone building in the center of this image is Portland High School, located on the southwest corner of 14th and Morrison Streets. Completed in 1885, it served as a high school until 1912, and the building stood till 1929. This photo was likely created during Watkin's last documented trip to Oregon in the winter of 1884-1885.
