Portland, Oregon 1890. Litho. Elliott Pub. Co.

The city of Portland, Oregon was founded near the Willamette and Columbia Rivers in 1845. Originally known as "the Clearing", the city was named after a coin toss between Asa Lovejoy and Francis W. Pettygrove, with Pettygrove emerging as the winner. Both had wanted to name the city after their hometown, with Lovejoy championing Boston, and Pettygrove wanting Portland.

The city has emerged as the 3rd most populous city in the Pacific Northwest, and is often recognized as the "Greenest City in America" due to it's proactive stance on environmental issues. Complete reference list below.
