Scope and content

Photograph showing an Oregon Journal car driving around a curve on the newly completed Cloud Cap Road on the north side of Mount Hood in October 1926. A cropped version of this photograph was one of three published on the front page of the Oregon Journal on Wednesday, October 6, 1926, under the headline “Cloud Cap Road Is Way of Splendor.” The photographs had the following caption: “Scenes along newly-completed spur road leading from Mouth Hood Loop highway to Cloud Cap inn, giving suggestion of scenic wonders unfolded along trip.” This photograph had the additional caption information: “One of the many wide curves, showing the banking at the outer edge.” The photographs accompanied a story headlined “Cloud Cap Road Finished; Fine View Unfolded.” The story reported that the 10-mile-long road, ending at the Cloud Cap Inn, would officially be known as the Cooper spur of the Mount Hood Loop Highway. Construction of the road had begun in 1925.
