322. Made in Oregon Sign Part 2. 

It's been over a year since I wrote about the Made in Oregon sign that welcomes visitors to downtown Portland. The soap opera surrounding the landmark has finally resulted in actual changes to the sign. (I would highly recommend you read the earlier post - it was a crazy story.) Last week the sign lost its Made in lettering and gained Portland, so it now reads Portland, Oregon. A little obvious and lacking in concrete meaning, but much better than losing the sign entirely - which was possible at several points in the past. They held a lighting ceremony the day after Thanksgiving complete with the traditional red nose of the white stag.

Here are a few images/videos of the process plus the final sign for your um, approval.

The tittle being removed. *sniff*
