Object Name Transparency, Slide
Description From the slide series "Development of the Columbia Basin," Set #13. Sixty-second slide of series (color), "And let us return to where we began with the dry arid desert, deserted homes, and forsaken schools. This settler had a hard time to even get the logs to build the one-room log cabin. He had to float the logs up from the Columbia River many miles away, drag them over to where he wanted to build the house. He dug a well but it went dry in the summer when he needed water most. He had little of the comforts of today - all he did was to toil and hope for rain. How the Columbia Basin is changing!" Picture of log cabin in field with basalt columns in background.

"Abandoned Home" written in ink on bottom half of slide frame. "KODACHROME / TRANSPARENCY / PROCESSED BY KODAK" on one side of slide.
