Historic Hood River
This image is labeled “Liberty Theater, 308 Oak Street” but I am not so sure. The Liberty Theater had a few names during its lifetime, but “Liberty” was the moniker in the World War I era. We saw it in one of my favorite HHR images. But the organ, piano and woodwork on this stage are a perfect match for other photos of the Rialto theater, a block to the west of the Liberty. The only difference is the radiator in this view which is missing in the other view.
We have images of a few different backdrops at this theater. One is a classic Mt. Hood scene which I suspect is a Percy Manser. This image is paired with another which look more like scenes from Europe than Oregon.
