Historic Hood River
Eph Winans, 1948
This view of Eph Winans is from a Kodacolor print dated July 1948. As is common for color prints of that vintage it was badly faded and mostly yellow. I did my best to tease out a little color, but not much is there to work with.
Winans penned a column in the Hood River News with his reminiscences of life in the 1880s. It was published between 1949 and 1950 under the title, “Hood River … as I Have Known It.” The Hood River Historical Society republished them in the 1990s.
