Thanks for the today photo.
I grew up in Washougal with the Pendleton Woolen Mill. I can remember being totally confused as a child when we drove forever and forever to Pendleton to watch the Pendleton Roundup. I thought they should have the Roundup in Washougal.

My dad owned the old Temple Hotel with bar and restaurant that was located in downtown Pendleton. I don't kmow when it was built. The top floor consisted of small "cribs" where the ladies of less than stellar morals resided and plyed their trade. That part of the hotel closed long before my fathers ownership.

Railroads, UP and NP, both show as does the Temple Hotel. I think it was quite novel that the Temple had a second floor outdoor swimming pool with an adjacent covered bar and tables.

On my bucket list is the Pendleton Underground Tour.
According to this article, the top floor of the Temple Hotel, must have been one of eighteen such facilities.
I suspect it was not a great life for those women.

I have done the underground tour. You need to know the full story of the "upstairs" before you say anything about it. Quite interesting.

I wonder if the tour guides story was the same as an old timers story as he related it to me about the place back in the day when he visited it frequently..
