This view of three men looking over Celilo Falls is one of Benjamin Gifford's better-known photos, and rightly so. It combines excellent technical quality, good composition and a poignant story. Our prints are recreated from a sharp original boudoir card - a popular size of scenic photo about 4.5 x 7.5 inches. Note in detail view 1 that the young man on the right is wearing western-style clothing. He may have been home visiting from one of the boarding schools of the time.

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