Not an expert, but would guess view of mountain is from the southwest side. Stumps in foreground would indicate logging had been going on in the area. Maybe haulback had siwashed a stump and friction had caused fire on a low humidity day.

Looks like West Fork Hood River to me, hard to tell exactly. Possibly slash burning after some railroad logging.

Wasn't aware they burned slash back in those days.

It looks to me like the picture was taken not too far to the southwest of Lost Lake
