Pacific Coast Souvenir, 1888.


43 & 44. WILLAMETTE FALLS. At Oregon City, Oregon, the whole volume of the Willamette River falls over a bluff that extends across the stream, furnishing not only an exceedingly picturesque and stupendous waterfall, but the finest power perhaps in the United States. Moreover, it famishes the angler an opportunity, at certain seasons, of testing his skill in landing a twenty-pound saline n. There are locks here connecting the upper and lower waters of the river. The shores are bold and forest-crowned, and the general features of the country are of particular scenic interest.
