A number of readers contributed information about last week’s History Mystery, above, including Dianna Brookless, Gary Conley, Linda Pyles and Mark Holland.
The photograph was scanned from a 4 by 5 inch black-and-white negative taken Oct. 4, 1954 looking east from Cape Horn as crews removed rock from the cliff area which is located just west of the Celilo railroad bridge, visible in the background. The information on the envelope reads, “Highway relocation at Cape Horn (Slate-Hail Job) Beth. Pacific Coast Steel.” Various negatives are described, including “men with Leroy Drill” and “drills in operation, with rock scalers working on cliff.”
The photograph was found in the negative archives of The Chronicle.
