A steam engine on the line of the Oregon Railway & Navigation Company (O R & N) passes between the two spires of The Needles on its way up the Columbia River. Detail view 1 shows the engineer leaning out the window - to improve his vision, and probably also to ensure he'll be visible in the photograph. The waters of the Columbia are high, though the telegraph poles to the right spent much of their time partly under water. Today the river's edge has been filled in, and both railroad and highway pass on the river side of the main spire. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
