Scope and content

Photograph showing a group of people standing on a dock next to an Oregon Journal truck. The photograph was probably taken as the group watched as copies of the Journal are loaded onto a Curtiss seaplane in June 1920. The plane was being loaded for a trial run to Astoria and Seaside, where the Journal planned to deliver papers by seaplane throughout the summer of 1920. The Journal published a story about the new delivery service, headlined “Journal Arranges Airplane Delivery,” on the front page of its Sunday, June 13, 1920, edition.
