Buchtel & Stolte photo of the 1876 flood in Portland Oregon

Wonderful though slightly damaged stereoview of the June of 1876 flood in Portland. This image was taken by Buchtel & Stolte. This image is First Street and the photographer is standing at First and Pine facing NE. There are 2 structures in the image that survive today and those are the New Market Theater built in 1872 and the New Market Block built in 1871. Both wonderful original cast iron buildings. Some other cast iron beauties in this photo that are gone today are Glisan's Block of 1869 and the 1883 Reid's Block. There are 2 older wooden structures including the Steilacoom Lager Beer Depot (also called the Gambrinus) and Oregon Bakery that are too long gone. Note also the wonderful early street light.

  1. Terrific! I have seen ads for the Gambrinus Brewery but I wasn't aware where it was located.
