My first thought was this is the Jaymar mill in Hood River, but the Jaymar Mill was hemmed in by the river and the railroad. The only place on the Columbia which seems to match is the Port of Cascade Locks, north of the Bear Mountain Forest Products site. Can someone fill us in on the history of the area?

Interesting that the dark roofed shed in the foreground has a large patched area plus braces on the side of the building. And it's extension looks to have wood placed on the roof . To hold it down? Gorge winds do that to buildings. That's a l ot of wood to be shipped out and it looks like winter time so getting ready for the spring building rush?

Definitely Cascade Locks, Herman Creek Lagoon. At tip of the hill on right is now called Blackberry Beach. At tip of the hill on the left is the road that goes to the mouth of Herman Creek.
