Historic Hood River
Mill Pond, Mill A
This image of the log pond up at Mill A bears what I believe is the handwriting of A.J. Shepler. In addition to the location, he identifies himself (“AJS”), “Fat” Withrow, and “Couchenhower”. Not a lot to go on, but maybe we’ll learn more about these men.
Mill A was up the Little White Salmon River, and fed the Oregon Lumber Company flume bringing logs down to the Columbia for the mill at Viento.
Not sure I like the way that trestle is sagging under the weight of the rail car full of logs.
