Historic Hood River
Railroad Work Camp
Ready for some more Earl Conser photos? Here’s his view of the railroad work camp at Mosier in April 1901. I believe this is where the engineering crew that he was part of was housed. I believe the construction workers were housed elsewhere. From several views of this camp it wasn’t nearly big enough to house the number of men it took to build the rail alignment.
I suspect those cats were critical to keeping the rodent population at the camp under control.
