Take a gander through time at the Oswego Heritage House
Curious about what Lake Oswego looked like in the early 1900s? Even Portland or our beloved Columbia River Gorge? The Oswego Heritage House and Museum's current photography exhibit takes the public back through sepia and black and white toned landscapes of a time when development was sparse.
As of Jan. 15, the works of former Lake Oswego residents William Bickner and Luard Lyman Woodward have been blown up and displayed on the walls at the museum.
The Woodward family collection in the Oswego Heritage House archives contains 82 photographs from 1919-21. Currently on display are 12 pictures featuring Boy Scout outings, the Gorge, George Rogers Park and more.
While there are 14 Bickner photographs on display, the archive collection of the Bickner family contains more than photographs. Also available for viewing is the family's store ledgers, scrapbooks and letters, among other items.
The exhibit will be up for about six months.
