Vintage “Portland Cars” Pacific Electric Clip

Posted on: July 18, 2013 by Pacific Electric No Comments

Uncovered by Alan Fishel and sent to us by Ralph Cantos comes this clip entitled Vintage film footage of transit in Portland, Oregon, but it also includes a minute or so of color Pacific Electric footage, including box motors, blimps ("Portland cars" as the narrator who shot the footage describes them - accurately, too!), Hollywood cars, and more, mostly around downtown and 6th & Main Streets.

The PE footage begins about 10:03 - scroll ahead if you like, but the entire clip is fantastic.
