This detailed view of the almost finished Vista House and the Columbia Gorge is from an original glass negative taken by George Weister, who was known for his scenic photography. A close look (see detail view 1) shows workers and some of their equipment gathered outside the building - perhaps eating lunch. We can therefore date this view to spring of 1918, as Vista House was completed on May 1st that year and dedicated on May 5th.
