1904 Port Orford Tribune

Four pages of irreplaceable Port Orford history. The pages were so delicate that it had to be scanned with a vertical scanner which was manually moved across the pages.

  1. From the Ads on every page and the Court Summons on the Back Page … nearly every square inch has information I am sure Historians will find useful.

    What I learned from the Court Summons was the identity who had owned the huge lumber handling structure on top of Fort Point. It seems it was a Portland Furniture manufacturing business – The Pacific Furniture & Lumber Company.

    Hopefully someday, someone will be curious enough to track down the complete history of that company 🙂

    Enjoy,

    Alan

    <I want to thank Donna Lindberg for helping with its purchase, and Tim Sparks and Becky for all the computer time involved with scanning these 4 pages of irreplaceable history.

    I was wondering who Donna was buying it for on EBay! This came from Patrick Masterson personal estate. It’s so nice to see Port Orford History preserved. Deborah

      Deborah,

      I was grateful for the opportunity to work with Donna, Tim, John Heida and Becky in digitizing and then sharing this historic edition of a Port Orford Newspaper.

      Hopefully history buffs, both now and in the future will find Becky’s amazing website to be helpful.

      By the way, Becky is the person I would recommend if you would like to have additional printed media from the Patrick Masterson personal estate professionally digitized.
