Memorial Day and Monument Square

Monument Square has long been the destination for parades in Portland- notably the Memorial Day observance. Here is a photo from this past Monday, with the Library in the background.

The older photo, from our Archives, shows the Square on Memorial Day in 1940. Note the building at the corner of Elm and Congress, where the Library is now!
