The weathered face of this unidentified older man tells us a lot, in this portrait by Oregon postcard photographer Benjamin Markham. A closer look at detail view 2 appears to show he is missing his right arm. At the time the original photo was created, in 1925, Celilo was an active fishing area, and plans for the eventual hydroelectric dam were still in the future.

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