Annex's Harborview, Oregon is a composite of Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. However, it can be said that to know the Portland of 1916 is to know Harborview in 1916.
"Old Harbor" is a heightened version of Portland's Skidmore/Old Town Historic District, while the Rae Street Bridge (mentioned in Season 2, Episode 3) stands in for the Hawthorne Bridge.
Yes, I named a bridge after the late Charlotte Rae. She deserved to have a bridge named after her.
