The West Shore

The West Shore was a literary magazine published in Portland, Oregon from 1875 to 1891.
It was founded by Leopold Samuel to promote a positive image of the Pacific Northwest and to encourage economic growth in the region.
The magazine was known for publishing excellent articles by well known authors and for its many high-quality illustrations.
As a result, The West Shore became one of the most successful publications in the Pacific Northwest.
Its finely executed illustrations showed the scenery, architecture, and commerce of Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and Alaska.
Today, The West Shore illustrations provide a detailed record of the Pacific Northwest as it existed in the second half of the nineteenth century.
