We're looking east towards Mt. Hood on what is now Pioneer Boulevard in Sandy, Oregon. The Barlow road trails off to the right in the background.

On the left are the Revenue Hotel and Store, built in 1874, and behind them the Gerdes Store and Post Office, built in 1873. While unsigned, we are attributing the original glass negative to Adolph Aschoff, who arrived in the area in 1878.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon from the original glass negative, courtesy of Ed Green.
