Portland's Goose Hollow

Dr. Tracy J. Prince, Ph.D., will present a slide show of historical photos from her book Portland's Goose Hollow, showing the earliest days of the frontier city of Portland. Scenes include: the Great Plank Road (Jefferson/Canyon Road);  rare photos of Tanner Creek running in its banks; Guild's Lake and Couch Lake; Chinese gardeners who terraced the steep slopes of Tanner Creek Gulch to grow vegetables; Native Americans who had encampments in the gulch; horse drawn streetcars; cable cars; Rose Festival performances on Multnomah Field; and many other photos that give a wonderful sense of life in Old Portland.
