Vintage Brochure of Hotel Seward at Portland, Oregon


Vintage brochure from Hotel Seward at Portland, Oregon.  There are no dates in the brochure but a photograph shows an an automobile from the early years of motoring.

The brochure, which has eight panes, is formed from one sheet of paper approximately 13-1/2" x 5-3/4", folded to the final dimensions of 5-3/4" x 3-1/2".



A double-pane spread, below, shows the main lobby.



Another pane gives the rates, which start at $1.00 up. The Manager was W. M. Seward.  The Assistant Manager was A. N. Pierce.



Two adjacent panes shows scenes of the Sheppard Dell Bridge and the entrance to the Columbia River Gorge, both along the Columbia River Highway.  The two pages list points of interest in and near Portland, Oregon.



The rear pane is a duplicate of the front pane.



If you have information on W. M. Seward, A. N. Pierce and/or the Hotel Seward, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks!
