Historic Columbia River Highway
Here is a sketch of one such possibility, sent from Chas. Cooper & Sons Civilian and Military Tailors, to Yeon. The accompanying letters reflect concern that the uniform cloth be made of fleece wool grown in Oregon.
The County portion of the highway was largely complete by 1916. It was notable for its beauty. In a letter from Lancaster to the American Roadbuilders Association he notes that it "...may be compared to the German Rhine between Mayenze [sic] and Cologne." You can still drive parts of the highway near Corbett, OR, stopping along the way to see Latourell, Bridal Veil, and Multnomah Falls.
