The photo above was taken in Klickitat County, looking to the west. In the foreground is Maryhill, now the location of Maryhill State Park. It was taken prior to the construction of the Biggs bridge over the Columbia River.
Gary Conley noted that the view shows three counties: Wasco, Sherman and Klickitat. Miller Island is visible as is the mouth of the Deschutes river.
Reita Stratton of The Dalles said that her mother and father, Roy and Mable Brown, were married in the church with three windows, visible to the left, on Nov. 25, 1909. The church is still standing. Her family was a founder of nearby Centerville, she added.
