Historic Hood River
The Kemp Family
We have a double mystery today. Meet the Kemp Family. This wonderfully sharp image shows many members of this farming family decorated with garlands of our first mystery. It’s a crop I haven’t seen growing in the Hood River Valley, though I suspect many of you are familiar with it. I’ve enlarged it in the inset to give you a little help.
The second mystery is: Who are the Kemps? I’m not familiar with this family name, though I suspect we’ll all know a lot more about them soon. The name “Nettie Kemp” appears on the back of the image, but without additional information.
