Irvington Neighborhood on a Snowy Morning

Portland, Oregon (February 2019)

The Irvington neighborhood is located in the northeast section of Portland, Oregon. The neighborhood streets were laid out in 1887, and residential lots began selling in 1891. An early example of a streetcar suburb, Irvington contains the largest, most diverse, and intact collections of Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts, and Colonial Revival style residences in the City of Portland as well as the State of Oregon. In 2010, Irvington was designated an historic district and added to the National Register of Historic Places.

A year ago I rode a bike around this place (Eesti VabaƵhumuuseum) and had an enjoyable time doing so. I really love open-air museums of this type. Are there any in the USA? I don’t know. I’ve been to them in Japan, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and now Estonia. Highly recommended. Make sure to rent the bike. I saw everything. Had I walked I don’t think I would have seen more than 1/4 of the place.

Prague

Another trip to Prague was in the works for 2020 until Covid-19 came along. Hopefully I’ll get back there in 2021.
