Back in September 2015 I went on my first pub crawl ... see My First Portland Pub Crawl — In the Pearl for all of the juicy details. While in downtown Portland’s Pearl District, I stopped by the famous, four-​story, one-​square-​block Powell’s Books on West Burnside Street.

While there I bought a copy of the quirky The Best Places To Pee: A Guide To The Funky & Fabulous Bathrooms of Portland book. It is a pretty unusual tourist guide — you might even call it weird. In spite of that — or because of it! — I received pho­to­graph­ic inspiration which I might not have found anywhere else.

Since then, as part of my effort to keep Portland weird, I have created my own series of pub bathroom photos. Until now they have been scattered across numerous pub crawl photo albums. To make them easier to find, I have gathered them together into this multi-​year conglomerate ‘super-​album’.

In addition, don’t miss this September 2017 article from Oregon​Live.com: This Portland restaurant might have ‘America’s best bathroom’.
