We recently received a donation of a few aerial views of Salem in 1947 (2012.051).  This image shows the old Oregon Pulp & Paper processing buildings along the riverfront in Salem.  We’ve put in a few modern markers to help you place it.  Below is a copy of the Sanborn Insurance Map showing the same region in the 1960s, after the company had been sold to Columbia River Paper Company.
