Carved out of solid rock in the 1880s, Willamette Falls' first fish ladder made it easier for salmon to ascend to the upper river. A new fish ladder, built in 1971, is currently operated by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The town of Canemah can be seen in the background, and detail view 2 reveals two electric passenger cars traveling the tracks on the east side of the river. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
