Reminds of John Leland Henderson, surveyor, judge, attorney, 1851-1927.

I am probably drifting away from the actual focus of this photo, but I thought I would mention that the Henderson brothers must have been a couple of tough guys.
I have read of John Leland doing early survey work in the Klickitat River area where the terrain is, to say the least, "hellish".
His brother, Louis F. was a botanist and did plant collection in the area of Mt. Adams.
Both lived in Hood River. I couldn't find a photo of John L. but there is one of his brother.
