I believe this is the power house at Tucker Bridge. The bridge and the Tucker house (far right) are still there but I think everything else is gone. Next time I pass this spot I'll need to stop and see if there are any signs of the hydro plant left.
It doesn't look like enough snow to warrant shoveling off the roof, but roof trusses were not engineered very precisely back then.
Really informative photograph. Almost their own tiny little town.
Can't help but marvel at those long shards of ice hanging down there. All reminds me of a few weeks ago......................brrrrrrrrrr.....

I had no idea there was a powerhouse at that location. Anymore photo's or info about this?

Here's a link to all of the archived photos in the area of Tucker Bridge. There are at least three photos which provide context for this photo; http://historichoodriver.com/index.php?x=browse&tag=Tucker&pagenum=1

The other day, I bragged about being able to recognize an Alva Day photo, but I failed on this one.
Using Jim's link, there is another Tucker Bridge winter scene photo #1263,
but the bridge is different.

The wooden Tucker Bridge was replaced with a metal one in 1912.

Tucker Bridge Is Opened To Traffic
The new steel bridge at Tucker's has been completed and it was reopened for traffic Tuesday evening. All automobiles and rigs can cross the bridge, but heavy automobile trucks will be barred for a few more days until all the rivets have been placed. The road on both sides of the bridge had been considerably improved by Supervisor Thos. Lacey. The bridge was built by the Portland Bridge Company.
