I wonder who lived in the tents on the hillside.
The water looks low. Is there a dam upstream to our right?

The Dam was under the tracks as the Mill pond was where you see the logs starting to get bunched up then the pond monkeys would send them up that slide to be cut into lumber.

Remains of the dam are still there. Take a look next time you're up Dee way. Wonder what the different structure near the housetents is s'posed to be? Could that be the cistern for the spring?

This entire operation is a bit south of the more recent mill. As spinsur points out the dam was at the railroad, which you can see from the current bridge a few hundred feet south (left) of here.
I think those tents are at our current road grade (Dee Highway). Didn't realize the hotel was so close to the edge.

My grandma was born in hood river in 1906. Her family lived in a white tent. I have a letter her mom writes explaining the living conditions. She was happy there. My great grandfather worked at lumber mill. I also have a picture of the tent.
