Vintage Portland

VP fan Bud Holland attended the “surplus auction” about a week before the Oriental Theater fell to the wrecking ball in 1970 where he picked up a number of papier-mâché urns, cast-iron wall sconces, etc. He’s since sold most of the items but still has the program and an entry pass distributed during the theater’s grand opening December 31, 1927. Thanks again, Bud!
