Subject

Steamboats -- Columbia River

Description

"Four of the old steamers which made the historic trip down the Columbia in May 1915 to celebrate the opening of the Celilo Canal are shown tied up at the Kennewick boat landing. The boats carried hundreds of joyous celebrants and public officials in the journey from Lewiston to Astoria to mark the completion of this important development for navigation on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Few events in the history of the Northwest have matched the spectacular interest and enthusiasm demonstrated in the Celilo Canal celebration of 38 years ago."
