Tiny Oregon Coast Brochure

Although this 1961 brochure says “Oregon” in large print, the fine print indicates that it is really about Oregon’s 400-mile coastline. Ten color photos focus on the northern Oregon Coast, but a map also indicates there are fine views, sand dunes, and wave-battered rocks on the central and southern coast.

One large photo shows the “historic Astor Column.” The brochure doesn’t mention that this remarkable monument was in fact built by the Great Northern Railway as a part of its 1926 Columbia River Historical Expedition. Visitors to the column in 1961 would probably see a sign saying so.
