There's a lot going on, and a lot of crisp detail, in this glass plate negative created by Ralph Eddy of Oregon City in about 1915. To the left, and in detail view 1, is the "Diamond O" sternwheeler, pushing the "Bonanza", a barge also bearing the Diamond O insignia. To the right are several of those rowboats you always see in scenes of fishing at the falls. And in the background are most of the buildings of the paper mill on the West Linn side of the river.
