Historic Hood River
I’m going to make some big guesses here. I think this may be just east of Hood River, about halfway between the Hood River Inn and the China Gorge Restaurant. The photo is from April 1939, and the bushels seem to be full of bulbs and tubers. My guess is Alva Day and his friends at the Game Protective Association are planting some wetland species to enhance waterfowl activity in the area. What do you think?
If I’m correct, their work was probably largely undone about ten years later when construction started on the river level highway.
