The Portland Area, 1869-1939. Newman was attracted by the excellent location at the confluence of the Grand and Looking Glass Rivers. He was not the first to be drawn to this area, as it had already been occupied for many years by the Chippewa and Ottawa tribes of Native Americans.

The Portland Area: - Mark D. Neese. On a more mundane level, but one particularly germane to the Images of America series, the years between 1869 and 1939 were a time in which photography reached the masses. The area that became Portland, Michigan was first populated by Native Americans. Between 1900 and 1920, photographic postcards were arguably at the height of their popularity.

In 1869, Portland was incorporated as a village.

In the early 1830s, a man named Elisha Newman made the first land claim in the area that later became Portland, Michigan. Newman was attracted by the excellent location at the confluence of the Grand and Looking Glass Rivers. He was not the first to be drawn to this area, as it had already been occupied for many years by the Chippewa and Ottawa tribes of Native Americans. After its 1836 settlement by European Americans, Portland steadily grew into an economic and industrial center of Ionia County. In 1869, Portland was incorporated as a village. This book contains nearly 200 photographs and illustrations that both document and celebrate life in the Portland area from 1869 through the years just prior to World War II, a time when the banks of the Grand and Looking Glass Rivers were teeming with industry and the downtown streets were bustling with activity.
  • I visited Portland, MI, walked around the area, and became interested in knowing more about the past. The book is an excellent collection of photos of a Portland that is now largely gone, replaced by a scenic setting perhaps idea for retired people, or people wanting a small town atmosphere. The book shows the Portland that once exploited the large forests that once existed in the state, including a furniture industry.

  • This book contains hundreds of outstanding historic photographs of Portland, Michigan. Highly recommended for any fan of Michigan history or local history. What really stands out are the many candid photos of townspeople from the 1890s. The camera captured them smiling and enjoying life (not stiff and stoic like we tend to think of people from that era).

    Overall, a great book!

  • I have lived in Portland Michigan all my life, but until I purchased this book did I find out the incredible history of my town.
