Historic Hood River
There is so much more here than I saw at first glance. Yes, it’s a classic school picture, but closer examination shows the photographer interrupted a snowball fight. Two of the boys and two of the girls are still holding snowballs, and it’s not hard to see who’s been at the receiving end. May favorite part is the smirk on the face of the third girl from the left.
This is from the Barrett School, circa 1904. A contemporaneous marking on the back says “Prof Murphy”.
