More from the 1972 McGovern rally

Thomas Rutter from Photomic [his photo blog – check it out] graciously let me post a couple of photos of the same pro-McGovern rally I scanned from The Scribe a couple posts back.

He took the photos as part of a photo-journalism course he was taking that year at PSU. It was the first year he was old enough to vote. Click on the photos for larger views – especially that last street shot. Great stuff.

    Looking east on Morrison, taken from between 5th and 6th (Pioneer Courthouse would be to photog’s immediate right)?

      I wish I could remember but I think you are right. McGovern did give the speech on the North side of the Courthouse right across from Meier and Franks. I noticed in looking at the picture of McGovern I can just make out Wayne Morse behind McGovern.

    Wow. Makes you wonder if all of those people became yuppies and voted for Reagan, doesn’t it? 🙂

      I didn’t, though I did come to feel sorry for Dick Nixon which may be just as bad.
