(en) Vintage photography Oregon, Highway. Photographer Arthur Prentiss


This picture depicts one of the highways of Oregon's the "John Day River Highway"

The title of this photographs is "John Day River and Rim Rocks. John Day Highway in Wheeler County".
Prentiss collected here another view of this Oregon Trail near the Columbia River Highway and intersects with U.S. Route 395.
The desolation of the landscape, not devoid of beauty by the proximity of the river, shows the difficulty of the work of opening new roads in the western U.S. state of Oregon.
Prentiss, a photographer based in Oregon had its main studio in Portland. Previously shared a studio with George Benjamin Gifford and Weisten.
