In 1919 the new Portland High School, designed by Miller & Mayo, opened.

The mechanical arts classrooms were placed on the Cumberland Avenue side of the building because that north side afforded the best light.

Mechanical arts at Portland High in the 1920s included automobile mechanics, printing, electricity, machine shop, woodworking and mechanical drawing.
