The Portland neighborhood, Sullivan’s Gulch, is named after Timothy Sullivan, who was a world-class traveler until settling in Portland, building his homestead, and inspiring a neighborhood to be named after him. He met his wife, Margaret, in Tasmania in 1841. This shawlette seems the kind of thing a globe-trotting, practical 1800s woman would throw on to head out to tend to the chickens.
