Scope and content

Interview with Mrs. Maltby, who describes growing up in Portland and answers questions about the Buckman neighborhood. Maltby lived in the Buckman neighborhood during The Great Depression; she talks about renting homes during that time, and the hardships many families experienced. During WWII, Maltby describes people moving to Portland to work in the shipyards. Maltby describes a Chinese cemetery at Southeast 20th and Morrison, and that bodies were disinterred and sent to China for reburial (this portion of the cemetery is located at the the Southwest end of Lone Fir Cemetery.) Maltby goes on to describe the changing demographics of the Buckman neighborhood, and the transition from more families and homeowners in the neighborhood, to more renters. Talks about a trolley that crossed the Burnside Bridge and travelled on Southeast Pine street, and mentions how there had been plans for a depot connecting passengers from Portland to Mt. Hood (this refers to plans for the Mt. Hood Freeway, which was cancelled in favor for light-rail system in Portland).
