The Drifter: 1912

The Drifter: 1912

Northern California circa 1912. "Boating on the Russian River at Healdsburg." 6x8 inch glass negative by Howard Clinton Tibbitts. View full size.

 

Resemblance to Paradise?

The River is not so different today, if you're a mile or so Northeast of town.

An Uncanny Resemblance

To Paradise.

Lazy River

Looks like it could be just above Healdsburg looking downriver near Fitch Mountain. Although there have been lot of changes since 1912.

Same Up North

Reminds me of two successive summers boating/floating down the Willamette River from Eugene to Oregon City. Had to make sure to paddle quick to avoid the ferries at Buena Vista and Canby, but otherwise just floated along, with the supply boat tied to ours. Best 110 mile long river trek I have ever done.

Could have been my grandfather

My mother was about 3 years old, growing up in Healdsburg, a mile or so off the river. My grandfather was a young man, recently arrived from Italy, by way of NYC.
