This too is rare for Horace Sykes: an identifiable landmark. I first visited Maryhill museum with my parents in the late 1940s on a trip from Spokane to Portland. This view looks south across the Columbia River to Oregon. The Green car, bottom right, may be rushing to the Maryhill Ferry. I remember taking a ferry or two across the Columbia but I no longer remember if any of those bridgeless crossings were here. Perhaps the Green Hornet is hurrying down river to Portland to solve a crime or to apply for a job with Bonneville Power.
