Battleship Oregon Statue

Battleship Oregon Statue

From the Oregonian Flickr collection, originally published On September 30, 1941.

Thanks to a anon poster on Oregon Media Insiders, my attention’s drawn to the Oregonian photo sets on Flickr.

The city Monday was asked to move the Skidmore fountain form S.W. 1st Ave. and Ankeny St. to the Battleship Oregon Marine park and “do away” with the statue now in the park. E.C. Sammons, chairman of the Battleship Oregon Memorial fund campaign committee, made the request. Theodore Roosevelt memorial stood watch over Battleship Oregon for more than two years, then disappeared.

Hi Bud! Opening Day pitch in 1985 or so.
