Oregon Historical Society says
Exhibition: UNEARTHED: Hand Colored Slides of Early Twentieth-Century Portland Gardens from the Oregon Historical Society

Free and open to the public

The Oregon Historical Society (OHS) and Newspace Center for Photography are proud to present a small exhibit of hand colored photographs of Portland gardens from ca. 1920 – 1935 called UNEARTHED. These images, all from the OHS permanent collection, were created by George C. Stephenson (1866-1940) on behalf of the Portland Garden Club (PGC). Following the First World War an effort was made to record the beautiful yet quickly disappearing estate gardens in and around Portland. Stephenson, the official photographer of the PGC, created hundreds of slides locally – many of which document the famed Portland gardens of the time, including the Kerr and Frank Estates (now Lewis and Clark College). All images were then colored by hand, taking great pains to accurately record the color palette of each garden or plant subject. In addition to public programs, the exhibit will include enlargements of select images as well as the display of the slides themselves at Newspace. The exhibit is on display from August 7 through September 26.
