Historic Hood River
An HHR reader has graciously shared a collection of books his father, Bus Gibson, collected over his lifetime. One of the books is a compilation of hand coloered photographs of the Columbia River Highway shortly after it was built. This view shows the long gone Talbot Bridge, near Latourelle Falls. According to the accompanying text, the private landowner’s property was split by the new highway, so he built a bridge “in Japanese design” over the highway.
