Klamath Postcard No. 176 — Upper Klamath Lake

The outlet of Upper Klamath Lake and the head of Link River are seen in this photo from the very early 1900s – before construction of Link River Dam in 1920. A few buildings along the shore of the lake facilitated the transfer of freight and passengers to steamboats and small launches. A few buildings can be seen on the west side of the lake. A little snow appears at the summits of Aspen Butte and Harriman Butte in the distance.
