    Greetings from the Oregon Historical Society!

    Congratulations on the release of your set! Would you consider donating a set to the OHS Library? If so, you can send it to me at 1200 SW Park Avenue, Portland 97205, or drop it off at the OHS front desk.

    We will be eternally grateful!

    These are absolutely beautiful. My set just arrived and I am mentally devouring them. They’ve changed the way I think about the city on a day to day basis.
