This Crawford stereoview shows the locks about twenty years after their construction, looking downstream. By this time the rocky island to their right was completely covered by industries that still exist today - a paper mill and an electric plant. Detail view 1 features logs being held in a basin for chipping into pulp, used to create paper at the mills. Detail view 2 shows the mills on the Oregon City side. The long building in the middle right is the Oregon City Woolen Mill. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
