This was right at the end of the bridge and that is where the distillery was when I was growing up.
That house on the right is still there.

I grew up, where, if the wind was blowing just right we could smell the Camas Paper Mill. In fact if we smelled the mill, my dad would say it was going to rain.
I wonder if Hood River sometimes had the smell of vinegar wafting through town?

Arthur, I don't know if a link to YouTube is appropriate here, so feel free to erase this comment.
I watched this video this morning about "why people didn't smile in old photographs". I thought the crew here might enjoy.

I'm scratching my head at Charlott's location. I thought this vinegar factory was north of the big AGA facility, on what we now call Industrial Street north of Full Sail (between 6th and 7th). That's where it's mapped on the Sanborn maps. Was there a second vinegar factory near the distillery on State Street?

LE, I here the Camas paper mill is closing, no more smell. We just lost two paper mills at Oregon City that cut up logs to sell paper and gained one that cuts up babies to sell parts.

Missed you, Charlotte, at the fun meeting several of us attended at the Museum on Monday. A special thank you to all the people who work behind the scenes to bring Hood River’s earliest days, by research, to all of us!
