Historic Hood River
Twenty years ago you could still buy gas on Oak Street. “The Station” advertised “Gasoline, Convenience, FAX”. I’m tempted to explain what a “fax” was. Hood River Travel was the next shop to the west. Maybe I should explain what a travel agent was too? I think Mountainview Cycles was in the next spot, where Dog River Coffee is now located. The gas station building also housed the “Made in the Gorge” artists’ cooperative. You can see the recently remodeled library peeking over the top of the building.
