The Oregon Historical Society owns a print of this view of Lily White's houseboat, the Raysark, near Castle Rock. Our version starts instead from the original glass plate, in a private collection, and is a slightly larger crop. It's not by accident that White and her friend Sarah Ladd created a number of photos of Castle Rock. The rock was purchased by Ladd's husband, Charles E. Ladd, in 1904. Ladd then sold it to Henry Biddle in 1915 for one dollar, with the condition that it be preserved. Biddle later built a trail to the top, and opened it to the public at no charge. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
