Black and white image of four men, one of whom is shoveling smelt from the bottom of a boat into wooden boxes. The boxes have the words "From the Columbia River Smelt Co. Kelso, Wash." stamped on them. The man doing the shoveling is an older man with his back to the camera. He is wearing a hat with a brim, a long-sleeved shirt, a vest with a large hole in the back, workpants and shoes. To his left, a younger man kneels, holding on to one of th boxes with his right hand. He is wearing a brimmed hat, long-sleeved shirt, and pants. In another boat facing the camera is an elderly man dressed in a suit, with jacket, white shirt and bowtie, and a brimmed hat. Next to him in the boat is a younger man, without a hat, wearing work pants, and a long-sleeved shirt with the collar pulled up around his neck. Behind them is the river and the opposite shore can be seen in the distance.
A man stands at the base of a crevasse on the White River Glacier. He is dressed in a short, brimmed hat, long sleeved jacket, trousers, and high lace up boots. In his hand he holds a wooden walking stick with a metal tip. A jagged wall of ice can be seen directly above the climber. The surrounding landscape is filled with uneven terrain of ice. Visible in the distance are glacial peaks.
A group of mountian climbers stand at the edges of a glacial crevasse. A woman in the middle of the image climbs down the crevasse using a rope for support. The rope is being held by four individuals. The climbers are dressed in layered garments, boots, hats. They carry bags, ropes, and pointed walking sticks. The surrounding landscape is filled with ice. A rocky cliff can be seen in the distance.
A black and white view of the toll bridge built across the Columbia River to link Hood River, Oregon, with the vicinity of Bingen, Washington. Built in the 1920s. This view is looking south towards Hood River and shows Mt. Hood, Hood River, and the Hood River Valley in the distance. Deciduous trees line both shores, and the hills in the background are fairly well forested, with conifers primarily in evidence. Buildings are visible in the middle ground on the low hills, especially to the right. A slight haze hangs over the valley in the distance but in the foreground the shadows of a sunny day are strong.
