Some nice imagery here of a bustling Portland on the eve of Thanksgiving 106 years ago. An owl car was the late night streetcar that traveled through the neighborhood once an hour into the small hours of the morning; read on. Happy Thanksgiving from alamedahistory.org
From The Oregonian, November 28, 1912
What a delightful reminiscence of the Thanksgivings of old. And the fathers carried the birds home.! It reminds me so much of a Dickens’ story. Thanks, Doug.
