This is another 6x6 negative from 1970 that I never printed before.  Picture taken probably in August a few months after the Civic Auditoriums Forecourt Fountain officially opened.  It was then a very popular place to gather and cool off on a hot summer day.  It was also popular in the evening as well.  A favorite blog of mine, Vintage Portland,  has been posting some wonderful old color photographs taken around 3rd and Clay before and during the beginnings of the South Auditorium renewal project.  The photographs are high resolution scans and can be clicked on to reveal a lot of detail.
