TitleWest approach to the Cascade Locks before the Bonneville Dam was built
DescriptionA black and white view of the Cascade Locks on the Columbia River, approaching from the west. The locks were completed in 1896 and submerged in 1938 with the completion of the Bonneville Dam. In the photograph, the lock gates are closed. A town is visible in the distance on the heavily wooded far bank of the river, and small wooded islands and some rocks are also seen in the water. To the right of the picture are several light-colored wooden houses, which all appear to be multi-storied. To the right of the houses runs the highway. In the distance rise the forested hills and moutains.
