Fotografo Arthur Prentiss. Fotografia antigua John Day Highway Oregon .USA

 
Esta foto representa otra de las autopistas de Oregón la John Day River Highway exactamente en "John Day River and rim Rocks. John Day Highway in Wheeler County".


Prentiss recoge aqui la vista de esta otra ruta de Oregón proxima a la Columbia River Highway y que se cruza con la US Route 395.

La desolación del paisaje, no exenta de belleza por la proximidad del río, nos muestra la dificultad de los trabajos de abrir nuevas carreteras en la zona oeste de Estados Unidos, del Estado de Oregón.

Prentiss, fotógrafo afincado en Oregón tuvo su principal estudio en Portland. Anteriormente compartió estudio con Benjamin Gifford y George Weister.
