This unusual angle shows the parking area for Koberg Beach, as well as the approach road where it crosses the railroad tracks. I-84 now cuts right through this land, and to drive to Koberg Beach you need to go all the way to Mosier and turn around.
Based on the cars and the power lines, I think this is circa 1935.
This is a great photo, as it gives a good over all view of the entire Koberg complex.
Interesting where the road crossed over the tracks, as I had it in my head the road was much further to the west.
Interesting to see how farming and entertainment went hand in hand.

This is an awesome photo. Never seen this view before. Wish it had never changed.

Wow- those are all cars in the center of the trees- and even a structure ... do I spy a few window frames- ?

Interesting historical picture. While change is often necessary and inevitable, we sure could have done a better job of not essentially destroying all that was good about Kobergs.

Someone just added a nice personal recollection about Koberg to a previous post: http://historichoodriver.com/index.php?showimage=744

Thanks Alva Day for another great photo.
If he is standing on a rock bluff to take this photo, I'm surprised we haven't seen the view more often.
With the number of cars, do you think it is the Fourth of July?
I spy someone walking along the tracks.

What is the easiest way for a computer illiterate old man to get to image 744??
Buzz on 23rd September 2014 @ 5:00pm
Someone might correct me on this but...
put your cursor on today's photo
click on the white back button that appears on the left side of the photo
when yesterday's photo comes up, it will have the number 878 at the end of the historichoodriver address.
Click your cursor behind the five and delete the 815.
Then type 744 in its place
hit your return key
the photo should come up.

The road down to Koburg from the old highway can still be walked as far as the RR. Available from the Hatfied trailhead.
