TitleBoat Landing on Columbia River, Hood River, Oregon
DescriptionA hand-colored photograph of a boat landing, used as a postcard with the heading "Boat Landing on Columbia River, Hood River, Oregon" in red at the top. In the background of the photograph on the far side of the river are low hills and trees.On the near side, a stern wheeler dominates the scene. To either side of it are a barge and another smaller steamboat; behind the barge is the tip of a sail. The landing is across from a small island.The sternwheeler appears to have just arrived; a small crowd is on the upper deck and a larger crowd on the lower. A man or boy sits on the edge of the lower deck with his legs hanging over the water. On the bank a crowd of about two dozen men and women and a couple of horses is gathered. The women wear long dresses. Some of the men are in suits and others in work clothes. To the left of the landing is a white wooden gate and a barbed-wire fence.
