Last week’s History Mystery was scanned from a 4- by 5-inch negative from the archives of The Dalles Chronicle.
It shows the stage of the Civic Auditorium in 1951. A cooking class is underway. The banner backstage reads, “You can put your confidence in General Electric appliances.”
Harmon said he remembers attending Portland pro wrestling matches on the stage in the 1960s.
