I’ve seen bazillions of old photos of Portland, especially on my photo trips to the Oregon Historical Society’s research library. What I haven’t seen before is footage like this, traffic surveys from 1939 that show familiar intersections with vintage cars ‘n folks. I find it fascinating, even though nothing happens.
Via Cafe Unknown.
6th & Washington
6th & Alder, with scary bicylce moment
12th & Burnside (E), still a messed up intersection–in color! 1939!
6th & Morrison, also in color
