Day 325/366 – The latest & greatest NIKE kicks @ Lincoln High School on an important day in history!
Today’s post is for all the history (and of course sneaker) buffs out there!
A very special thank you to: Hailey McPhee for sending over these photos taken in the main corridor of Lincoln High School with her friends + thank you to her father: John McPhee for this hot off the press story!
Ladies and gentleman…it was on this day (November 19, 1863) – EXACTLY 149 YEARS AGO – when Abraham Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the military cemetery. Lincoln High School – a public high school located in the Goose Hollow neighborhood of Portland, OR – was established in 1869 – 6 years after Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address – making it one of two oldest public high schools west of the Mississippi River.
So, it’s an important day history-wise…with a magnifying glass on the latest & greatest Nike sneakers in Portland!
