Apples for sale, 6th street, Portland, 1910.  I wonder what varieties were popular here back then. FB_IMG_1613950712237.jpg

@davem, thank you for the great photo!

Here is a link with a partial answer on page 7. link

If I can figure out how, other than transcribing the list, I will try to post it.  It's kind of funny, a book written in 1904 bemoans the loss of  good old days when apples were so much better before that.

I bet that many of the apples were from the wagon that Henderson Luelling brought over on the Oregon Trail.

Thanks Daniel, that is a very interesting document!  Imagine what it must have been like to grow apples before the pests and diseases showed up.  And the demand/price for apples was sky high.  I converted the $2.50 to today's dollars, that would be $69 - for one apple.
