Portland History and Memories

A page devoted to the 19th and 20th century history of Portland, Oregon and the immediately surrounding communities. Designed to celebrate people, places and events that were uniquely Portland. We have set the year 2000 as a content cutoff point in order to keep the focus on history, not the present.

The group was created by Bill Hall on August 3, 2013 and is administered by a council consisting of Bill and twelve other people. All administrators are encouraged to build the group through posting, commenting and recruiting members. They are also empowered to move photos posted directly to the feed to appropriate albums, with credit to the original poster, and to remove spam, off-topic and abusive posts.
