Women dancing for May Day celebration


Five women, most likely students from Pacific University, posing in dance costumes in a lane near Forest Grove, Oregon. They may be the dancers who performed "Joy of the Morning" for the 1928 May Day Celebration at Pacific. The parallel lines of trees surrounding them are the Giant Sequoias planted by John Ramsey Porter on his property just north of Forest Grove, off present-day Porter Road. These were the first Giant Sequoias to be grown in Oregon, planted sometime around 1868-1870.
