Historic Hood River
We’re trying something new here at Historic Hood River. Morganne Pockels, who works in the Museum, is sharing photographs of artifacts and events at the museum building. I’m going to post them on Mondays because they seem like a good way to start the week. This one is especially timely because you don’t have long to check out the current special exhibit of Peter Marbach’s photographs. Peter’s photographs in the traveling Oregon Historical Society exhibit “A Century of Wonder: 100 Years of Oregon State Parks” are only around until September 30.
The photograph on the right is captioned, “The Columbia River runs wild and free for nearly 200 miles flowing north from Fairmont, B.C.” The photograph on the left is captioned, “Pain of Memory: Ktunaxa elder Alfred Joseph reflects on the impact of the loss of salmon to the BC first nations eighty years ago upon completion of the Grand Coulee Dam.”.
