The Astoria Column on Flickr.

The column was erected in 1926 by the Great Northern Railway Company. The structure is covered in sgraffito (a plaster muraling technique) that spirals from top to bottom depicting the story of European settlers chasing, persecuting, and enslaving the Native Tribes of the Northwest.
While at the base of the structure I overheard a Native American visitor say “It’s fitting that the monument is a massive phallus.”

Sea Liones hauling-out at the Port of Astoria East Mooring Basin - Astoria, Oregon

Sea Lions hauling-out. Hauling-out is the behavior associated with pinnipeds (true seals, sea lions, fur seals and walruses), of temporarily leaving the water between periods of foraging activity for sites on land or ice. Hauling-out is necessary in seals for mating (with the exception of the Baikal seal) and giving birth (though a distinction is generally made between reproductive aggregations, termed “rookeries”, and non-reproductive aggregations, termed “haul-outs”). Other benefits of hauling-out may include predator avoidance, thermal regulation, social activity, parasite reduction and rest.

John Jacob Astor Elementary School - Astoria, Oregon

Many local people were used as extras as well. Much of the art work used in the film was done by Astor School students. When visiting the school, please view only from the sidewalks to minimize disturbance to the students and staff. No visitors are allowed on school grounds.
