Period Paper is pleased to present a collection of prints from 1915 that capture the majestic beauty of the landscapes and landmarks along the Historic Columbia River Highway No. 100, (US Route 30), through the Cascade Mountain Range in Multnomah County, Oregon (OR) in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States of America (USA). Twenty-five of these prints are of photographs developed through the early color photography process known as the Paget process that used a pair of glass plates, (one color, one black & white negative), to expose and develop a composite color image. The Columbia River Highway was constructed between 1913 and 1922 and was primarily designed by American engineer and landscape architect, Samuel C. Lancaster (1864-1941), who modeled his design after the scenic roads of Europe. Many of these prints are of photographs taken by Samuel C. Lancaster himself, who "carried [his] camera in a rain-proof bag in all kinds of weather, that [he] might be ready when God painted the pictures." Each of these prints are in pristine condition and are perfect for framing! To continue browsing this spectacular collection, simply click on the link provided beneath the condition paragraph.
