This is a nice interior view of the Dixon McDonald store at 3rd and Cascade. As much as I like people to label their photos, I hate it when they deface an image like this. I don't think my feelings were shared by previous guardians of this collection, as a significant percentage of the images have notes scrawled within the margins of the image.
We saw the interior of Mr. McDonald's store in this image also.

I know it is distracting, but at least the image is identifiable.
I have been given some photos of early area pioneers. One is a beautiful lady, and the photographer is Ralph Gifford of The Dalles. Because of HHR, I know a little about Gifford and his talent. He was in The Dalles 1895 to 1910.
I have no idea who the lady is.

Arthur - before I read your Notes, I had the same reaction. Then I thought it would be easy to do some simple image processing and remove the writing since the ink is blue and the image is B&W.

Behind the gentleman on the right is the wrapping area with paper and string dispenser. I can remember this in every store, before the era of plastic bags. I think I would still prefer this as recycling plastic is such a bother. Paper recycles or becomes good fire starer.

Another nice example of conversion to tube and post electric lighting, as seen in the George Crowell store a few days ago, though this time the referenced prior posting doesn't provide a before-and-after, as did the Crowell images.

I meant photographer Benjamin Gifford. Not Ralph.

Based on the hand written caption, I believe the woman second from the right must be Eliza Hinrichs, wife of John W. Hinrichs (my great-great grandparents). The gentleman on the right bears a resemblance to Copley Hinrichs, eldest son of John W. Hinrichs. We have seen him before in pictures associated with First National Bank (see Image # 284). Although I can't be sure about him, since a lot of the men in those days looked similar with those TR style moustaches.
If Arthur had removed the hand writing to clean up the picture, I would have never made the connection to my great-great grandmother, unless Arthur had dutifully captured the handwritten notes in his Notes section.
