Although it's been a while since I've posted anything new, I assure you I have been hard at work. I will have posts on two projects in the next weeks, documenting historic streetcar development and Portland bicycle history, respectively.
In the meantime, I was hard at work applying the finishing touches to an article on the Crooked River in Central Oregon that I have submitted to the Oregon Historical Quarterly. Its not transportation related, so I'll spare you the details (hopefully, you can read it in about six months - give or take - in the OHQ).
Here is a little sneak peak of the streetcar post. (pdf)
And here is one on Portland Bike history. (pdf)
