Historic Hood River
This 1948 Alva Day photo documented the installation of the “Eng’rs Pump” down by the railroad tracks. I’m not sure if the pump is still there, but I’m more interested in the old cannery building which has been more recently known as “Springhouse Cellars”. We discussed the early history of the building in this post. The new owners are interested in more recent history. This photo shows it as Ray’s Transfer (a trucking/hauling business) in 1948. What businesses do you remember in that building, and when? I recall a pool hall about 2000, following an antique store. Any recollections or details will be appreciated.
If you need a little orientation, we’re down below Front Street. The billboards above Ray’s were at the east end of Oak Street. You can see a little of the Mt. Hood Hotel Annex building peeking out to the left of the billboards.
