Historic Hood River
Chief Pot Cleaner
I like finding new details in images I’ve seen before. These men are manning the pot washing station at the 1935 Legion Climb. Feeding hundreds of people was a major endeavor, and I’m sure they generated a lot of dirty dishes. Fortunately they had large boxes of “Nu Bora” to help out. It turns out “Nu Bora” was a granulated borax based soap from a Portland company. I’ve never heard of it, but maybe it was popular in Hood River back then.
