Here's a nice view of Jewett Street in White Salmon on digital loan to us. The three buildings in the foreground are still there.
Check out the hard rubber tires on that Master truck. The trailer tires are practically done. I like the screw jack to hold the load tight.

Interesting the jacks holding up the chains. I wonder if every few miles they would climb up and adjust the jacks. Looks like they are about topped out.
What a bumpy ride into town.

Model T folks tell me given how primitive the suspension was in those vehicle you don't really see much difference in ride between hard rubber tires and pneumatic tires. I'm skeptical. I actually have a set of hard rubber tires for my T but they are so dried out I fear they will disintegrate if I try to drive on them.

Great old truck photo. Dumb question: how does a "digital loan" of a photo work? Do you have to take the picture off the HHR site and give it back to someone at some point in the future?

Must be a nice day, no side curtains and windshield wide open.

I hope this was OK, but I have added this picture to Chapters 2 & 6 of my "Early Tears of White Salmon and Surrounding Areas" Facebook group. This is what I captioned it with: The above picture from the Hood River Museum digital collection. We now have a Hill’s Cash Store. The date this photo was taken was between 1916 and 1922, as the Columbia State Bank occupied the shorter brick building beginning 1916. In 1922 the building to the right burned down. The truck could be dated 1916 as it has the solid rubber tires and the kerosene head lights, but the vehicle to the right has metal rims and balloon tires so we will place a 1921 date on this picture. There are no newspaper articles to indicate a Hill’s Cash Store, but there was a 1920 article to indicate the Crow’s Cash Store. It appears the name of Crow’s was just changed to Hill’s
