Portland's Living Room
This afternoon I made a sales call at a downtown Portland hotel. The lobby is on the 8th floor because Macy's takes up the first seven floors. I caught this view of the center of downtown. The building in the foreground on the left is Pioneer Courthouse which is a federal courthouse. Built in 1869 it's the oldest federal building in the Northwest and second oldest west of the Mississippi.
On the right is Pioneer Courthouse Square which is also known as Portland's "living room". This is where concerts and rallies are held and where the Christmas tree is on display. And since the Northwest is known for its rainfall, today we even had the usual fair on tap.
