Historic Hood River
Dr. Shaw’s Excursion
Dr. Shaw’s album includes several pictures from the Wallowas. This image of his carriage crossing the Wallowa River caught my attention because of a detail. If you look closely at the guardrail you’ll see it is lined with advertisements for local businesses. It’s a little hard to read with the carriage in the way, but it looks like “Crockers” and some “Hardware Store”, along with several others. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising to see roadside advertising, but I wasn’t expecting it.
