After hemming and hawing quite a bit I've finally just started plopping locations from the 1905 Lewis & Clark Centennial Expo into a new map over on Platial. Hopefully some additional photos and text end up here at the Tinzeroes mothership, but we shall see.

The 1905 Expo is a big reason I liked Platial in the first place. Guilds Lake, where the Expo was held, is what we call today "Northwest Industrial Portland" and I still remember the first time I saw a photo of the Expo and exclaimed "where was that?" So, here we go...

Any chance that amazing mashup Platial map you made of Guilds Lake lives on? (I think the company went under - did they take all the maps with them?!)

Company sold and there was an opportunity to export your maps to some other software. I did not export so the map is toast (sorry!).
