Historic Hood River
Wooden Bridge over the Hood RIver
This fine view of the old wooden bridge across the Hood River dates from about 1915. This bridge was much lower than modern bridge, leaving a steep climb up to Button Junction.
Regular HHR readers might remember I posted this same image a while back, but this fresh scan shows the benefit of doing things the “right” way. Compare this new view with this old one and you’ll see why even the photographs in our collection which were previously scanned are being rescanned.
If you think this new version looks good, remember you’re only seeing a fraction of the resolution of our new digital archive. The archived version of this image has 130 times the pixel resolution of the version you see above. We look forward to sharing the high resolution images in the future.
