No. 669.  Multnomah Falls.  700 feet.  Columbia Highway Ore.
TitleNo. 669. Multnomah Falls. 700 feet. Columbia Highway Ore.
DescriptionA black-and-white photograph. At the bottom is written in white ink "No 669. Multnomah Falls. 700 feet. Columbia Highway Ore." and a copyright statement with two illegible initials and the name Lavalleur. In the foreground of the photo is a bridge with a small brook running under it. A group of people are lounging on it near two parked convertible automobiles. Some of the men wear caps, and one wears a straw boater. One man is leaning over the bridge facing the camera, consulting a map or guide which hangs down over the parapet on which two other men are sitting. The spoked tires of the cars can be seen through the arches. Beyond this bridge are the two cataracts of Multnomah Falls. There are more people on the stone-built Benson Bridge, which arches gracefully over the lower falls. There are trees on top of the cliff from which the water is falling, and more leafy trees and bushes framing the view .
