I think every parent has a picture like this of the baby in a wash basin. I like the way you can just make out Mom holding the backdrop for the photograph.

This is great.

This reminds me of a YouTube tutorial that I watched about bathing a swaddled baby. This little baby is certainly not a newborn, but bathing it in a washbasin was done until they outgrew it I suppose.

Looks like someone else is also behind the backdrop holding the baby up.

I think that bowl was traditionally used for mixing up bread dough.

She was the backbone of history for this site. We learned so much about the orchards and families at Pine Grove, Cloud Cap, Celilo, Underwood, …..the list goes on. Thank you Charlott.

Covid took one of our treasured members. So sorry at the loss. Comfort to the family. Truly a major loss to this website and her voluminous history of the Gorge.

Very sad news on the passing of Charlott. She was such a wealth of knowledge on this site of local history and families. She will be missed. Condolences to the family. We can only hope that in due time, whatever historical information and family records she may have had may find its way into the hands of others so it is not lost and will be available for generations to come.

We’re so fortunate Charlott found us here and was so generous with her knowledge. I’m happy this site can preserve a small fraction of her knowledge. There were many posts that I wrote knowing they would give Charlott the opportunity to talk about some little corner of local knowledge. It won’t be the same without her.

So sad! I was hoping to speak with Charlott about her memories of Arline Moore. Good lesson not to put off connecting with people, since there’s no guarantee there will be a tomorrow.

I can’t imagine this site without Charlott’s knowledgeable and freely offered comments, happily read day after day. It is heartbreaking news for Charlott’s family, and certainly for the Valley’s community.

I checked back to find Charlott’s last comment, and it was here on April 29, about Arline Moore and her role in moving the historical society from the Yasui store location: https://www.hoodriverhistorymuseum.org?showimage=2660
