Historic Hood River
A River Runs Through It
This fine fishing photo is annotated, “From Sam, Christmas 1898.” At a later date someone added, “Trout pool, Shushula. Stephen Baldwin.” It is not clear who “Sam” was, but I’m sure one of you will offer a theory.
This is from the S.M. Baldwin family file. I believe the reference to “Shushula” places this near the junction of Indian Creek and the Hood River. Shushula, Reverend T.L. Eliot’s “cottage,” was somewhere above that spot, though I don’t know the exact location. The funny thing about landmarks is that no one ever describes where they are!
