Portland, Oregon A. D. 1999

While poking about in one of Portland's many wonderful used book stores, I came across a slim volume titled Portland, Oregon A. D. 1999 and other Sketches, written by Jeff W. Hayes, and published in 1913 by F. W. Baltes & Co., in Portland. Facing the year 1999, I was curious enough to purchase the volume.

This piece of fiction, while certainly fanciful, is an interesting supposition into the future of the city. The racism and ethnocentrism exhibited were regrettable, but have been left in for accuracy. Nevertheless, it does offer insight into the city of 1913, the issues it faced, and the directions in which it was headed.
