A very old sign for Holmes Business College in downtown Portland, near Burnside Avenue. I shot this photo on a recent visit back to Portland. An older shot of Holmes, the 4th photo I ever posted on this blog, can be found here. A bit of internet browsing indicates that the Holmes Business College was opened in 1887 by G. Holmes. There’s a pretty good article about this building on the Portland Building Ads Blog including a shot of the building from 1923 when Holmes Business College was in operation.
