Historic Hood River
“At the Headgate of the Middle Fork Irrigation Co. 1914”
This view of what looks like a very new headwaters to the Middle Fork Irrigation Co. Ditch is from the Lois Pieronnet (later Cloud) photo album. Someone has been kind enough to add a few sheets of biographical information to the album, which lets us know Lois Pieronnet lived in a Parkdale home built in 1912 by Jim Pieronnet. She lived there from 1912 to 1915, and the house was later owned by Mrs. Gracey, Lloyd Van Riper, and Dave Hurliman. The notes indicate some of the people in the album were Mr. Busch and Mr. Barroll, Anthony Euwer (poet who we met earlier), Rae Babson, Mr. and Mrs. McIntosh, Arthur Bae, Roy Routson, Douglas, Jack and Eric Gordon (“former owners of the Frank Hood, then Harry Etheland, now McCarthy place”)… I have no idea if any of these people are in this image, but we saw some of Lois Pieronnet’s friends here and here.
