Burnside: A Community is a "photographic history of Portland's skid row," published by Portland photographer, Kathleen Ryan, in 1979. This striking series of photographs, text, and maps reveals the stagnation and flux in Portland's Old Town Chinatown neighborhood. Ryan's photography encompasses the homeless, Chinese, Japanese, and Native-American communities that called downtown Burnside their home along with the shelters, strip clubs, bars, and businesses that comprised the skid row landscape. As part of the Dill Pickle Club's PDX Re-Print series, this edition includes a new introduction by Street Roots editor Israel Bayer.
