DescriptionA black-and-white photograph. At the bottom is written in white ink "No. 126. River Front, Arlington, Oregon. B.C. Markham The Dalles Ore." The picture was taken looking down a hill towards Arlington and the Columbia River. Various houses, yards, and buildings are visible. At the right of the photograph is a railyard, with a large water tank at far right and a smaller, taller one closer to the water. At least three segments of trains are on the tracks: one is on the outskirts of town, and a few other railroad cars are visible on two different tracks amongst the buildings of the railyard, including a boxcar with an open door and a round tanker car. In the distance beyond the town, the line of the railroad tracks and the line of a road parallel each other just above the river bank. The eye can follow them a long way down the river, past a landscape which with its treeless bluffs on both sides of the river looks barren and deserted. On the hill above them runs a line of telephone or telegraph poles which continues down into and through the village. In the foreground of the photo beyond the boulders at the edge of the hill from which the photo seems to have been taken is a house and yard (with the corner of another yard showing). Two privies or outhouses are visible at right. In the center a person in a hat and jacket stands next to a pile of firewood. Behind the person is a water pump in the yard. This house has a lean-to or shed which is roofed with tar paper and has a stove pipe sticking out. Other wooden houses, and some fenceposts, are visible through the scattered trees in the town.
