Historic Hood River
“Unusual Aerial View”
This postcard is captioned, “This unusual aerial view shows the Vista House at Crown Point, which was built at a cost of $100,000 as a memorial to Oregon Pioneers. A magnificant view of the Columbia River is seen from this point.
This image shows the modern river level highway, but Rooster Rock State Park hasn’t been developed much. You can compare with a more modern view with this Google Earth view. There are a lot more trees alongside the highway today than there were at this earlier date.
