In the course of my discoveries, in trying to get things sorted, I came across a few more pictures of bathing beauties. Unfortunately some of the pictures in this group had not been treated very well over the years and some were not taken well in the first place and are out of focus.
These pictures were taken circa 1916 to 1920, and it must have been summer time, as the Columbia River is far too cold to be swimming in at other times of the year. They show grt. grandma, Wanda Dale Roberts, who went by Dale to her friends and Matie to her family. She is with her family and friends at Koberg's Beach, a pleasure resort that was just east of Hood River, that no longer exists, but was greatly enjoyed at the time by locals and visitors to the area. It was destroyed by the rising water when they built Bonneville Dam.
