The original for this view is a larger print made by Kunselman and Gerking of Klamath Falls, looking across the Gold Ray Dam, which had been built in 1904. Kunselman and Gerking produced some of the highest quality photographs of Oregon landscapes, but only stayed together as partners for about a year.

The Gold Ray Dam was originally built to provide power to a gold mine near Gold Hill. It produced the first hydroelectric power in southwest Oregon. In 2010 it was removed, and now the Rogue River flows freely from Lost Creek to the Pacific Ocean. Note the fish ladder in detail view 1.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
