Vintage Portland has been one of my favorite blogs lately. I subscribed a few months ago and everyday a new historic or old time photo is emailed to me from somewhere around town. I have found so many great images of Portland and my neighborhood that I have started saving them onto my hard drive and have been using them as backgrounds on my computer. These pictures look fantastic on a large screen.

The archive is huge but if you find a real gem I would love to see them.

Below are some of my favorite images from Vintage Portland:
