As Mick Jagger once said, there is no future, only recycled past. And one can scarcely find a pattern more frequently repeated than that of vice…and vanquishing. Indeed, in our own time -in our own city- these things are never far from sight. When in doubt, check your rearview mirror–in this case, to just over 100 years ago, when the City of Roses was both very much the same…and shockingly different.
This weekend, two different authors with a shared love of Portland will give their perspectives on the city’s cycle of rise, ruin, and reclamation:
And Tracy Prince, author of the new book Portland’s Goose Hollow, which contains hundreds of photos documenting a Portland era very nearly lost to history.
The show will also feature another “Outlook Portland Editorial Reply”, brought to you by our marquee sponsor, Things From Another World. This week’s guest editorialist: Magic: The Gathering’s Thornscape Battlemage.
