Historic Hood River
Hood River Bridge
Another fine Reeves postcard, this time of the Columbia River Highway bridge over the Hood River. This graceful bridge replaced the much earlier bridge which washed out with every major storm. It served the highway and the community for 60 years until it was replaced by the current bridge. It’s too bad it didn’t last another decade until the sensitivity to preserving elements of history and beauty had gained a little more favor. I suspect this bridge wasn’t salvageable, but the replacement could have been a little more attractive.
