A sunny day at the entrance to the Central Library


A woman and boy ascend the stairway to the entrance of the Central Library on 10th Avenue, as a woman is descending while reading. Two young men lean against the ornately carved middle archway of the entrance. The balconies above the entrance are visible. One of the bronze lamp standards located on either side of the broad steps can be partially seen through the plants on the right side of the photograph. The young boy wears knickers and a matching jacket. The man on the right has a newsboy cap. Transcribed from back of photo: 'Central Library, Portland, OR 1935'.
