A quiz

Which of the following is an early 19th-century shower and which is a medieval torture chamber?

A.

A.

B.

B.

Lucky guess, smartypants.

The shower is located at Portland’s lovely Pittock Mansion, the former home of the longtime owner of the Oregonian. You see, children, once upon a time, a long time before you were born, newspapers made a lot of money, and their powerful owners could build themselves beautiful mansions, filled with marble and tapestries and bidets. Don’t be frightened, those days are long gone.

Stay tuned: more on Portland and the gorgeous Oregon coast — the current front-runner for America’s Most Beautiful — to come. If you enjoy seeing hundreds of other people’s vacation photos of sunsets, you are really going to love my next post. Get excited!
