- 1884 - 1885
Album of photographs from the Watkins new Series depicting the Columbia River Gorge during the winter storm of 1884-1885. Plates are arranged numerically by Watkins number. This album was originally owned in 1886 by Charles H. Prescott (b. 1839), manager of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Co. from 1881-1887, and is inscribed with his signature and the date. Eight of the photographic plates have been removed from this album and matted; these loose plates are stored apart from the album in Box 7.
Watkins, Carleton E., 1829-1916
