This view of Celilo Falls looking upstream shows the recently completed Columbia River Railroad Bridge in the background. Finished in 1912, it replaced an earlier ferry service. Like many Columbia Gorge photos of its era, it contrasts age-old geologic features with newer man-made structures. Patterson, based in Hood River, created this photo as part of a scenic stereoview series. You can see another of his views of the bridge in the Related Photos section below. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
