Portland in the Before Times

I feel so fortunate to have taken my family on vacation to Portland just mere months before it was burned to the ground! What a sad state of affairs in the Republic when a whole beautiful wonderful American city can be allowed to be over-run and allowed to be occupied and destroyed!

Portland...what a beautiful place it was...

Wow, you really have a great eye!

What a shame it is that Portland no longer exists. It was such a lovely place.

I feel like the hyperbolic tongue in cheek is lost on a lot of people here.

‘Burned to the ground’ might be “hyperbolic, tongue in cheek” but Portland like many West Coast cities, have a lot of challenges (homelessness and its environmental and economic impact) being one. In Portland’s case political upheaval and its impact on small business owners.

Hahaha yes, I'm so glad you made it before the Rose City apocalypse. You could never have taken such gorgeous photos now. It's all been burnt to the ground, and only the homeless occupy the rubble.

Great photos. It's sad that such ugly things can happen in such a beautiful place.

Sigh... Why even have the Skidmore Fountain if no one's ever going to take a picture of it?

Meanwhile, what's this building?

Federal Office Building. Built 1974, if I recall correctly, remodeled a few years ago.
