This is the film (silent) of the contruction of KGW Radio and Television bulding at 1501 SW Jefferson, Portland, Oregon. At the time it was one of the more architecturally significant buildings constructed in Portland. For people familiar with the area this film also gives us a glimpse at the Goose Hollow area almost fifty years ago. At the end of the clip is construction of the KGW Skyline Tower. At times there are some jaw-dropping moments as workmen are harnessed to the rigging and hauled to the top.
