A very interesting 1919 map of Portland, with street car lines marked with a black solid line and street names (with street car reference) listed. City Scenic Trips (solid line) and Streets Leading to Highways and Boulevards (dotted line) are marked in red. This map predates the renumbering of 1933: "our street number system provides 20 numbers to a block, five city blocks for 100 numbers...Ankeny street is the starting point for numbering streets running north and south, the number at Ankeny being 1. No streets on West Side have 'W' either as suffix or prefix." There are many docks and businesses marked along the Willamette River, and no airport. On the verso is a continuation of the street names, a black and white map of the Columbia River Highway "The Scenic Driveway of the World", and information on transportation options to visit the Gorge.
