What a peaceful view of the ferry and steamship landing at Hood River.

Must be spring or early summer. High water. Looks like the wind is blowing.
Last week, when the wind was blowing so hard and river swells were so high, I was thinking about what it must have been like trying to get back and forth across the river before the big green bridge was in place.

Appears tops of trees in this photo may be permanently bent over from the wind. But they do provide a good windbreak for landing site.

Was this landing downstream from or in the mouth of the Hood River?

This landing was north of the train depot, in the Hood River delta. It's probably a hundred yard walk to the depot from that spot.

Do you suppose the ferry landing by the railroad bridge in photo
http://historichoodriver.com/index.php?showimage=670 came about for unloading automobiles?

The Regulator dock was constructed in late 1904, so this image is no earlier than that date.
