The Portland Water District acquired the Portland Water Company in 1908. It is believed this photograph was taken in 1915 and depicts some of the District employees during either an annual meeting or employee training. The banner behind the Portland Water District employees lists some of the Portland Water District's accomplishments over the span of its 6 and 1/2 year control of the public water supply.
