TitleOne of two part panorama. Looking across Columbia River to Vancouver, Wash.
DescriptionA black and white image looking north across the Columbia River to the town of Vancouver, Washington. The river is in the foreground. At the far left a tall smokestack is seen behind some buildings. In the middle of the photo is a building with the large letters OWL (possibly standing for the Union Pacific Railroad's Oregon-Washington Limited) near the top. Various other buildings, some wooden, line the riverbank. Tall log pilings are driven in several places along the shore. Near the shore in the middle of the photo is a barge. Towards the left on the bank is a large flat piece of material tilted into the water, perhaps something to do with the building of a bridge across the Columbia. In the background to the right of the photo are trees and low hills.
