TitleSteamboats in the rapids approaching Cascade Locks, Columbia River Highway, Oregon
DescriptionA black and white view of three steamboats in the water approaching Cascade Locks on the Columbia River. The paddlewheel of the large stern wheeler to the left of the photo can be clearly seen. This ship is much larger than the other two at right, and has been identified as the "Bailey Gatzert". One of the other steamers has been identified as the "Charles R. Spencer". Their smokestacks all belch smoke. In the river some small islands can be seen. On the further shore, a low, well-forested riverbank with a settlement of houses rises to wooded hills. To the center right of the picture the locks are seen. The Cascade Locks were completed in 1896, and submerged in 1938 as a result of the construction of the Bonneville Dam.
