Historic Hood River
Fashion Stable Detail
We’ve seen this view of the first Fashion Stable at Oak and 1st before, but I found another copy with enough resolution to zoom in to the great detail. You can appreciate what it took to rig up a wagon– or dress to go out of the house. The projecting sign to the right says “Fashion Stables, Feed and Sale”. The cupola of the Mt. Hood Hotel rises above the livery building. The number of insulators on the utility pole tells us how many phone lines there were in the neighborhood, as each line got it’s own wire. There’s a street light hovering like a UFO to the right of the livery. And of course, there’s the dog in the woman’s lap.
