  21. Thanks Maggie. I lived in Baker for many, many years. It's still a good place to raise a family.
    Lots of logging for many years and a long history of gold mining throughout the area. Were you aware Baker came real close to being the state capitol during the 1800's? Had a lot of population then.

  23. A few more of Baker Oregon. After the gold rush most folks left and cattle and logging took over. Cowboys still drive the heards up and down the main roads in and around that area today. If you run into heard on the roads we call that a cow jam. And yes, they have the right of way.

    I don't know the driver in the first attached photo but it's a great shot. I guess they had window trays and drive in restaurants with curb service even then.

    And I'm just guessing on the last shot but that almost looks like Wilbur Shaw being towed in at Legion Ascot. Of course, he could also having the rope attached to the front axle to be tow started as well.

    Thanks for posting, Rootie!

  26. I did - I love history and there sure is plenty out that way. We took the kids when they were little and saw the Sumpter dredge, hit all the museums, rode the Sumpter Railway, toured what was left of a few ghost towns. years later I drove a number of Pendleton grade schoolers on the school bus and did the same thing. Walked around Baker City a lot waiting for high school games and swim meets to finish.
