This is a heartbreaking look at what the Columbia River Gorge used to be. Rife with editing errors that don’t matter a bit, compared with the photographs of what used to be. For me, the most telling caption (on an overhead photo of the Bonneville Dam) “The stuff that nations are made of- development and progress. It invariably means the death of a river.”

Lots of photos of Celilo Falls that was, pictures of the mighty Columbia when she was mighty indeed.

Probably of interest to historians and Oregonians only.
