A number of photographers from around 1900 produced black and white (actually sepia) photos of scenic paintings - many of which included Mt. Hood. Most were boudoir card size - slightly smaller than 5x8 inches - which were often displayed on stands in living rooms and bedrooms.

This particular view is by Benjamin Gifford, who was best known for his own scenic photography. We do not know the name of the artist. The sepia tones tend to give these images a softer palette than the original paintings.

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