Note
Image caption: Hallock & McMillen. This building is Portland's oldest surviving brick structure. It originally housed the offices of Hallock & McMillan. Absalom B. Hallock was an architect and William McMillan was a building contractor. Kuchel & Dresel, artists and lithographers, published over 50 city views between 1855 and 1859. Most of these lithographs represent sites in California, but seven include Oregon cities. The images of buildings often surround a birds eye view of a city and represent scarce documentation of early built works. Source: Reps, John William.
