This view is William H. Partridge's take on the garrisons of Fort Canby, located, as the title states, at the Bay Beach on the inside of the southern tip of Long Island peninsula. Originally built for the Civil War, the fort, originally named Fort Cape Disappointment, served through 1947. Its site is said to be the location where Lewis and Clark first stepped into the surf of the Pacific Ocean in 1805. Other views of the fort can be found in the Related Photos section below. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
