  1. I’d like to know how Bridal Veil Lumber Co. got its name. Judy

  2. Judy, Most likely the Bridal Veil Lumber Co. got its name from Bridal Veil Falls located in the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side of the river. The falls is one of many in that area of the gorge and truly resembles a bridal veil. Beautiful area!

  3. I love the photo of Myra Sparks McKee, in period dress, working in that rustic kitchen. Our world today, 101 years later, and women’s “place” in it, would have been impossible to imagine back then. Thanks for sharing! Kim

  4. Thank you so much for posting this picture of my great-grandmother, it is one of my favorites.
