This colorful image is recreated from a hand-tinted magic lantern slide from an unknown photographer. It demonstrates the popularity of Hood River apples even ninety years ago.

The smiling crew have clearly gotten into the mood to have their group portrait taken. The banner stretched behind them touts Diamond Brand, which was the brand of the Hood River Apple Growers Assocition at the time. The association still operates today, as Diamond Fruit Growers.
