Sold in Oregon : historical Oregon trademarks.
Oregon State Archives, updated 14 July 2003.
[http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/tm/home.htm]

This rich digital exhibit collects images of Oregon trademarks collected by the Secretary of State’s office between 1864 and 1965.  Flour, produce, salmon, dairy products, packaged foods, medicine, clothing, lumber, automotive products, music, liquor, and cigars are all highlighted. 

There are some truly curious items among the 174 included in the exhibit.  Some oddities I enjoyed are: Breakfast Dwarfies; a “web foot” illustration (it’s dated 1905 — perhaps this is something to do with the Lewis & Clark Exposition in the same year?); Sacajawea, an Oregon Perfume; and the delicious-looking Ice Cream Highball.
