From nearly the same place on the Willamette’s west bank, but with a different tree and more flow over the falls, we showed another Sykes slide last August 12. The following day we put up another look at the falls, one from an earlier negative. It too came with no caption. I have only seen Willamette Falls from the train on trips between Seattle and California, most of them in the mid-1960s. The smoke drifting in the sky above the falls here may come from a diesel. Horace was raised in the Willamette Valley and after his move to Seattle in the late 1920s he still had family attractions in Oregon.
