Nice picture. A man of the earth, who is comfortable with his place on it.

The dog looks pretty comfortable also.
That's because they have a Chevy!
I wonder if there was a mill in the area that cut those fence pickets?

This little dog was in many of the photos that I have seen, both in our personal collection & in these that were given to the museum. I wonder what his name was?

That is not Ed Wonsyld.

The background (with fencing) looks like our old family homestead in Yacolt, WA

I don't think that is Uncle Ed. Maybe one of the other brothers. Possible Uncle Arthur AKA Stub, before his accident, where he lost half of his arm?

a man and his two best friends.....perfect

I don't think it is Ed either but the smile is definitely similar to Don's. Beverly I think you are right.

Although the History Museum's new director, I have not commented on this extraordinary blog, because I am a recent arrival in Hood River and you all know much more about its history than I do.
But i do want to give Arthur the recognition he deserves for sharing the Museum’s rich collection of photographs with the wider community. Much of the public knowledge about what we do is thanks to Arthur’s efforts, both in the Photo Room and on the web. The success of the Historic Hood River blog is due to 1000s of hours of research and computer work. Beginning with evaluating the individual photograph, then its scanning and cataloguing in our inventory system, followed by research on particularly interesting objects/subjects, and then the actual posting of the image and writing the commentary for the blog, this is a lengthy and precision demanding process. We are so fortunate to have Arthur’s attention, dedication, and expertise. We salute you, Arthur! Best, Lynn

Nicely put Lynn....and welcome to HR and this wonderful service your Museum provides.

Family determined this is Philip Wonsyld. He was an older brother of Edward. He had a twin Arthur "stub" who lost an arm at 16 to a gunshot wound- so this can't be him.
