Historic Hood River
In 1953 Alva Day photographed this image from every side. The house number “922” is clearly visible, but I can’t identify the exact location. It looks like his neighborhood in the Heights, but I’m not sure if the house is still around.
Check out that great gas lawnmower. It’s not hard to see how those machines could pose a risk to the operator or anyone in his path.
Arthur, unless I am missing something, this is the same house previously shown in Image 2516 and the street address location was given on that page, including the current google maps street view.
KMB, you are correct. It's 922 5th st.
This is two blocks east of where my grandparents built their home in Hood River in 1950. This home should be right on the corner of June and 5th if still there?
Actually One Block East Russ, Don't know What Happened to Sixth Street !
Jim, it is funny that there is not a 6th Street through that neighborhood, as you and I both knew because we grew up very close to there. My wife-to-be learned that the hard way. I had picked her up at the Portland airport, and I was driving her up 4th Street to meet my parents for the first time. I think that she was building up the nerve for that meeting, and she still talks about how she was caught off guard.
Just testing you, @kmb… What happens is with over 3000 images posted I am relying more on the database to tell me if I have posted an image before. Since this isn't exactly the same image I posted last time that did not help. Usually similar images are clustered together in the database, but the Alva Day collection looks a little like someone shuffled the deck of the cards just once or twice– it's not random but it is not organized.
