If I'm not mistaken, this is the old schoolhouse turned first Hood River courthouse, in the big snow of 1921. It was taken by Ruth Shafer.
Here is the school 30 years earlier. It was built in 1882. We still have the original plans and records of accounts for constructing it. When Hood River became a county in 1908 the schoolhouse became the first county courthouse. About 10 years after this picture the courthouse moved to the Butler Bank Building, before moving back to this site with the construction of the new courthouse in the 1950s.
Arthur, it's too soon for a winter photo ;)
