Recently, we were talking about the Hood River News moving their printing to Salem. Here's their press room in 1940, when they were located at 411 Oak Street. That address is now the location of Dog River Coffee (and Mountain View Cycles before that).

This is pretty much as it was in the mid to late 1950's when I saw it. When they were actually working it could get very noisy in there. A Mr. Benson was their type setter and noise didn't bother him as he was deaf.

I stand corrected the typesetters name was Stewart Turnbull. His sister was named Onalee Turnbull Benson and lived on a wheat ranch in The Dalles.

Did they have more than one typesetter. I cannot remember my friend Barbara Smith's dads first name but I know he was a typesetter in the late 50's.

The Hood River News was directly across Oak street from my Dad's Shoe Repair shop at 410 Oak Street, next door to the Hood River Bowling Alley. Hood River Cleaners was just west of the News.
