Historic Hood River
Hood River, 1956
This fine 1956 Alan Winans view of Hood River from the Columbia River Highway loops was mixed in with the Camp Yallani slides. I’m not sure how it was related, but it offers a great view of the city in that era. You can see the old location of the Nichols Boatworks and Hood River Marina, before the 1962 Army Corps of Engineers project added to the waterfront. The river level freeway was new, with different exit ramps than we have today. The bumpout of land north of the freeway toward Wells Island was the high ground where our wastewater treatment plant is now. And of course, there are those fine pickup trucks!
