Historic Hood River
Pioneer Association, 1921
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to these folks for having the foresight to collect and preserve so much Hood River history. They gathered at the intersection of First and Oak for a panoramic portrait, capturing a little more history for us to enjoy. I know these panoramas don’t show that well in this format, but to the right is the Cameron Motor Company, a Studebaker dealer, apparently in the Mt. Hood Hotel building. You can see the reflection of the Yasui Bros. store in their window. Across the street is the Gem Cafe and a hardware store, possibly Blowers Bros. Hardware. The building to the left at 15 Oak Street does not have a business sign. Further up First Street appears to be Slutz Bros. Garage.
Was everyone in business with their brothers? Fill in some other “brothers” (or sisters) who did business together in our area.
