I think I have seen it. Looks like an Oak St. or State St. home.

Memory jog. Pretty sure it is the John Duckwall house on Oak Street.

That looks to me to be the old John Duckwall house on Oak Street.

807 or 809 Oak Street

Not sure quite where, but it is Oak Street.
Alva Day must have like houses in the snow.
Maybe he liked the black and white contrast.
Any idea what the symbol on the door might be for?

To follow up on Arthur's walk about suggestion, yesterday the wife and I had lunch at pFriem on the water front and explored the HR Waterfront Park. My first visit to both after many HR trips. The Park is excellent addition to the HR I remember. While not Coberg in its hay day, there were hundreds of families on the beach and playgrounds enjoying the Columbia and the great weather. My compliments to the city and port.

I think it is a Red Cross emblem, meaning that they (who ever lived there) probably the Duckwall family were contributing members to the organization, or volunteered in the Hood River area. The house showing to the left is the house where my sister-in-law grew up..

To add a bit: In the late 1940's, I sometimes was in this house to play with Freddie Duckwall. Is was one of the nicest houses I've ever been in. It has large spacious rooms that are well layed out, and the furnishings were beautiful. I particularly remember playing marbles on the large Persian rug in the living room. It is still one of my houses that I use to judge other houses by. And at the time, the house to the left that you can see, was where the Dick Duckwall family lived.

811 Oak Street. John C. Duckwall house, on National Register of Historic Places.
I delivered the Oregon Journal newspaper here when I was young, about 1967. I was never able to collect on the final month owed to me by John Duckwall, so I had to take it out of my earnings.

811 Oak Street is correct.

Funny. Send a bill to Freddie for back owed newspaper bill.

Do not try to find a parking place at the "Waterfront Park" on a busy day. There was absolutely no parking when I was down there. I will wait and go during the week or when the tourists decide it is time to go home. Anyhow, it is a wonderful place to take my granddaughter. I know what you mean about collecting for the newspaper.....my boys always had trouble with what was seemingly people with good finances.

In the late 1930's I was standing just behind the "double tree" watching fire and smoke coming from the second story bedroom above. Margie Duckwall Talley was near me crying very hard because it was her room and many of her dolls that were burned. I felt so sad for her.
