Scope and content

Photograph showing the burned remains of buildings after a fire in Cascade Locks, Oregon. The fire occurred on Monday, July 2, 1934, and this photograph was taken on July 3. Unidentified people are standing nearby, looking at the rubble. A similar photograph, image No. 375A1003, was published on the front page of the Oregon Journal’s home edition on July 3, 1934. That photograph was published under the headline “Where Fireworks Took Heavy Toll at Cascade Locks.” It had the following caption: “The band played on at Cascade Locks Tuesday despite the $60,000 fire which concluded the second day of the July 4th celebration there Monday night. Above—Looking east from the new Lakeside hotel on the razed block. At the immediate lower left is the charred remnants of the fireworks stand where the fire started. Beyond (in order) are the ruins of the I. O. O. F building, the S. E. Parras meat market, the Blue Moon cafe, and at the end of the block the W. H. Clark home.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Fireworks on Rampage Burn Locks Block.” Also see image Nos. 372A0731, 375A1002, and 375A1004. Image note: Negative damage at lower right.
