2308 Portland Avenue

Art, Ohio River Settlements, Portland/Louisville, Urban Sketch, Urban Sketching

PortlandThis facade is among many in the Portland (Louisville) neighborhood.

First settled in 1811, it was the largest major settlement on the Ohio River. Because of the Falls of the Ohio canal, warehouses, shipyards and immigrants settled, helping to establish a vibrant community.

Many buildings still stand, representing a unique and functional architecture. (http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/showthread.php?t=16750)
