Early Days of Burnside

Before the park started they used to go down there and drink beers. Someone suggested making some tranny and the legend was born. Since 1990 'til now, Burnside in Portland, OR has stood as a monument to 'Do It Yourself' spots everywhere. Take a look back to a simpler time that made the blueprint for all under bridge creations. Burnside then, Burnside now, Burnside forever. Peep the first generation lurkers in action. Mark Scott for President. –Jake Phelps
