We owe a huge debt of gratitude to these folks for having the foresight to collect and preserve so much Hood River history. They gathered at the intersection of First and Oak for a panoramic portrait, capturing a little more history for us to enjoy. I know these panoramas don't show that well in this format, but to the right is the Cameron Motor Company, a Studebaker dealer, apparently in the Mt. Hood Hotel building. You can see the reflection of the Yasui Bros. store in their window. Across the street is the Gem Cafe and a hardware store, possibly Blowers Bros. Hardware. The building to the left at 15 Oak Street does not have a business sign. Further up First Street appears to be Slutz Bros. Garage.
Was everyone in business with their brothers? Fill in some other "brothers" (or sisters) who did business together in our area.

Neat photo and taken in an appropriate area!!
The Yasui reflection is so clear. I wonder if that was planned.
The little old lady right center appears to be standing on a box.
There are notable characteristics of some of the subjects, that I think some of them could be identified.

What about the Kelly brothers? I think there were 3 brothers and at least 2 and maybe all were in business with each other at one time.

There were only 2 Kelly Bros - Fielding and Roy, and yes they were in partnership with one another. Downtown they had a furniture store plus a chemical business for orchardists, as well as Kelly Bros packing plant.

This image of the Pioneer Association attendees was taken September 17, 1921. The September 22, 1921 edition of the Glacier has a two column article listing all of Pioneer Association attendees. Just five months prior Jennie Hunt gave John Calandra a five year lease on both the building, you see on the left, and to her home hidden behind the trees. John Calandra had opened The Modern Barber Shop in June, 1921.
