Scope and content

Photograph of San Francisco Mayor James Rolph (right) shaking hands with Portland Mayor George L. Baker. The photograph was probably taken on Friday, October 26, 1928, after Rolph arrived in Salem by train. Rolph and a delegation of San Francisco businessmen and officials visited Salem and Portland on October 26-27, according to a story on the front page of the Oregon Journal on Saturday, October 27, 1928. The story, titled "Rolph Party Plays Golf, Goes Driving," reported that the group's visit included a stop at the statehouse, 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. Image note: The text “Rolfe + Baker” (sic) is written on the negative and is visible on the right side of the image.
