Historic Hood River
Bird’s Eye View
This view of Hood River from the east side shows a great view of the old bridge which was known for washing out with every storm. You can also see the Mt. Hood Railroad is supported by piers, which were eventually replaced by a dike (like the main line railroad in this view). The railroad and bridge narrow the date to 1905-1919. There is a horse and wagon crossing the bridge, so I’m guessing the early end of the time range.
The reverse says “Harold Wells photo” so maybe Charlott can help us narrow the date further.
