Scope and content

View of businesses in The Dalles, Oregon, attributed to Lorenzo Lorain likely taken between 1856 and 1857. Businesses on the street include J. Conser & Sons Flour & Feed, Metzger & Buch., and the Globe Hotel. There are several horses with carts and wagons on the dirt street in front of the buildings and several men stand in front of the buildings. A handwritten note on the front of the photograph reads, "The Dalles, 1864." A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads, "From Mrs. S. A. Brown, 1830. Lorenzo Lorain photo, 1856."
Image note: Lorain was not longer in Oregon in 1864. If Lorain was the photographer, this image was likely taken in 1856-1857.
