The Library of Congress has decided to digitizes some amazing old photos. According to KGW Portland -
An incredible window into our nation's past is now web-friendly and live online.
At the center of it all are thousands and thousands of photos, taken during the Great Depression. They were commissioned by the government and stored in the Library of Congress, but researchers at Yale University decided they could do more. So they created a website.
The photographs show an older and less developed city that is still distinctly the Portland that Oregonians know and love.
