Roy E. Roos, author of many neighborhood history articles over the last 9 years, is putting together a book on the history of Albina. The old town of Albina was inside today’s Eliot, Boise & King neighborhoods. There has only been a limited amount of history documented about the early days of Albina and there have only been a few old photographs found at the Oregon Historic Society. He previously authored the book “The History & Development of Portland’s Irvington Neighborhood” in 1997 and is targeting publishing his latest book in 2007.
Roy seeks old photographs for his book and old stories about the area. If you would like to know more history about your own property, he conducts historic research at very reasonable rates, all for support of the book. You can reach him at 503-282-9436 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
