Fotógrafo Arthur Prentiss. Fotografía antigua Oregon Columbia River Highway

 

La fotografía recoge uno de los puntos mas caracteristicos de la Columbia River Highway "Hood River Loops, Columbia River Highway near Hood river".



En 1913 se decide la construcción de esta autopista en el estado de Oregón que recorre unos paisajes maravillosos y agrestes a la vez.

No solo es un "national landmark" (algo asi como Monumento Nacional de/en la naturaleza) sino también como una obra de ingeniería muy adelantada para su tiempo.

Arthur Prentiss recoge con su cámara, en este acaso las curvas que hace la carretera convirtiéndolas en el centro de la imagen, a la izquierda de la foto una casa de madera nos sitúa en el entorno rural propio de principios del siglo XX.
