Looks very cold to say the least.
This could very well be John Embly Binns and his wife Cora. He was English and came to America.

There are Binns in early Klickitat County history, but I don't know if they are of the same family.

Wish I would have got the family pictures from my cousin when my aunt passed. Have many pictures of the Oak Grove area.

I used to look forward to winter and snow. Not sure wisdom has come with old age, but maybe fewer foolish thoughts.

Since we have been looking at photos of Hood River area lumber mills, photo #175 show J. E. Binns working at the Parkertown Mill.
Did you go through Oak Grove to get to Parkertown?

Just a thought Arthur, but if people have old photos but don't want to permanently give them away, is there a method for making copies for the museum's collection?

That would make a pretty Christmas card.

Yes, l.e., my maps show Parkertown about halfway between Oak Grove and the Green Point Mill. Would be near where Post Canyon/Riordan roads come into Binns Hill Road.

Adding to spinsur's comment, Parkertown is now the site of the Binn's Hill staging area for the moto trails around Kingsley. It makes sense that a nice flat spot would find a new use.

A Charles Parker had Little Boy Ranch, just west of Mitchell Point on the Col. River. The train stop there was called Sonny.
Must have been the same Parker family?

Reminds me of a HR winter in I think the early 1950s where the snow was over the top of our Belmont Road ranchette fence line (just south of the radio station antenna) and a neighbor Mert Hamon was ice skating on top of it due to a freezing rain......the good news, here comes the snow plow on Belmont, the bad news, get your butt out there and shovel out the driveway throats AGAIN..
