The Portland Outdoor Store

Portland Outdoor Store, 1890

The signs on the east side of the Portland Outdoor Store were recently covered by vinyl posters; the vinyl lasted a couple of months while the signs, up and weathering for decades, still soldier on, although darkened/damaged by the glue used to stick up the poster.

I hope these signs are preserved and protected from further damage. The whole package - worn signs, worn building - is a Portland icon at the corner of SW 3rd and Oak.

The wind has already torn apart that vinyl Blazers' banner...and yet, those painted signs will last for eons.
