This handy navigational guide to Portland, Oregon was compiled in 1926 by Areman Pittmon and copywritten by Fred B. Bain, Inc. of San Francisco. It was designed to fit conveniently in a pocket or glove compartment and provides a comprehensive transportation overview of the city and surrounding area. Street car lines and railroads are highlighted in red, along with the location of the Hibernia Commercial and Savings Bank.

A spinning dial in the center of the sheet provides a letter that corresponds to the block numbers radiating from downtown. These ‘coordinates’ then correspond to a comprehensive street index and list of locations of interest on the verso. Also of interest is the inset map of the Columbia River Highway, ‘the Scenic Driveway of the World’, which was completed just a few years prior to publication.
