Bertram Towne operated a successful portrait studio in Portland from 1885 to 1895, but was also known for his scenic photographs of the Columbia River. This view is looking west, from near the western end of the Long Narrows, also known as Fivemile Rapids for its distance upriver from the city of The Dalles. In the 1855 treaties Indians had reserved the rights to fish in their traditional places, including this prime fishing ground where the whole of the river was channeled into a single linear chasm cut deep into the bedrock.

The photographs in Wild Beauty were meticulously restored and carefully prepared for print reproduction in order to capture the detail and tonal range of the original images. These beautiful archival inkjet prints are made to order from the restored digital files. Our standard sizes denote the paper size; a small border is left around the image to make framing easier. Custom sizes are easily produced, though, and priced by the square inch; if you would like to inquire about a custom size, please contact us.
