Scope and content

Portrait of (left to right) Portland Mayor George L. Baker, Oregon Governor Isaac Patterson, San Francisco Mayor James Rolph, and San Francisco Chamber of Commerce President Philip J. Fay with others on Friday, October 26, 1928. Cropped versions of this photograph and image No. 271N2158 were published on the front page of the Oregon Journal on Saturday, October 27, 1928, under the headline " 'Here We Are, Says Mayor James Rolph.' " This photograph had the following caption: " 'I told you we were coming,' said the genial San Francisco mayor to the equally genial Mayor Baker of Portland, when the two men embraced at Salem Friday afternoon. With Rolph were 20 prominent San Franciscans, who saw the Willamette valley from motorcars as they drove from Salem to the Rose City. Governor Patterson welcomed the visitors to Oregon at the state house. In the photograph at top are Mayor Baker (left), Governor Patterson, Mayor Rolph and Philip J. Fay, president of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce." The photographs accompanied a story about Rolph's visit to Salem and Portland, titled "Rolph Party Plays Golf, Goes Driving." The story reported that the San Francisco delegation's visit on October 26-27 included a banquet, golf, a luncheon, and a drive on the Columbia River Highway. According to the story, Rolph and his party were returning a visit by a delegation from Oregon in February 1928. The name “Rolfe” (sic) is written on the negative and is visible on the right side of the image.
