Portrait of George Singleton. Singleton was an early resident of Portland, who at one time lived on the northwest corner of Alder Street and Sixth Ave. He likely held many professions, as most early settlers did, but he is listed in the 1882 City Directory as a “hackman” (driver) for Acker and Leahy, a city stables on Washington (Burnside) and Stark. This photograph may have been taken in 1880. Learn more about George Singleton from the Oregon Historical Society: https://digitalcollections.ohs.org/george-singleton-portland
