No one provided information on last week’s History Mystery, above, scanned from a 4- by 5-inch black-and-white negative from the archives of The Dalles Chronicle. Information on the envelope reads, “Soda Works, The Dalles, Copy - old picture. Aug. 27, 1956.” The date is when the copy was made; the original print is labeled 1911.
The same print is online at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center. The caption reads, “John Rose Soda Works, 610 E. 2nd Street in 1911. L to R: Blaser on soda wagon; Soda Water Bill; Charlie Borders; John Rose; Tony Paulson.”
