Historic Hood River
Someone’s placed a typed caption on the reverse of this print which says, “Taken from depot- 1890’s O.W.R.&N. Railroad and Mt. Hood Railroad” but that’s mostly incorrect. We can see the 1906 railroad bridge and dikes on the OR&N Co. mainline, the Mt. Hood Railroad wasn’t built until 1905, and we can see the Columbia River Highway bridge and eastside loops which place this 1920 or later. We see the Fashion Garage at the base of Oak Street, which means this was no later than 1929 when it burned.
I think that’s the Mt. Hood Railroad depot to the left. which would place the 1911 OR&N Co. depot out of view behind and to the left. That’s the old livery building from the first HHR posting in the lower right corner, so the image was more likely taken from one of the old hotels, perhaps the Mt. Hood hotel cupola?
