Historical NoteReturn to Top

Portland, Or., presented the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition and Oriental Fair in 1905. The world's fair drew visitors from the region, nation, and world to see what Portland had to offer. It featured buildings of exhibits representing many states and nations, as well as a midway called the "Trail."

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection of snapshots by an unidentified photographer (possibly from Washington state) gives a brief tourist-eye-view of a visit to the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition and Oriental Fair at Portland, Oregon, in 1905. Also included is one snapshot of the Cedar River at Renton, Washington. The snapshots are glued to seven gray album pages that are assembled with cloth tape and appear to have been removed from a larger album. Identifications are handwritten on album pages in white ink.
