Slightly faded but a wonderful image none the less. The back of the image has written "Henry J VonBehren Family". The photo was printed by W. B. Pickett of Salem Oregon. I was not able to find anything on the family. There are other images by this photographer about on the internet.
I found this photo recently. The handwriting on the back was pretty bad but thanks to google I was able to determine that the house is at 2331 Lake St in San Francisco. The house is still there today and looks exactly the same!!! Way to go SF!
Ok so it's not an old photo but I'm so glad this rare chandelier has survived! This stunning example can be seen at Tolly's Restaurant in Oakland, OR. Apparently it used to be in an old carousel. This Bailey chandelier dates somewhere in the 1880-1889 range
I don't know the location but the names of all of the people in the photo are listed. At left are Nellie and Harry Dakin. The 3 at right are John Prescott & Frances Bartow with Amy Frances Bartow. Faded and there is one spot of damage but a great image none the less. Great architectural detail!
This dwelling was built as an "experiment station" at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR. Built almost like a duplex but I'm guessing it's classrooms as each side is oddly narrow. Note the side door that has no stairs.
This is a photo postcard of my great great grandfathers home in Yakima WA. It is still there today and the older home show in the background is also there but it has lost it's porch (and looks rather odd without it too I might add).
This is one of the first old architecture photos I purchased. I found it in Seattle but bought it because it said it was Sellwood in Portland. It's a large neighborhood so I suppose it could still be there. Anyone recognize it?
A rather interesting double exposed photograph of the Albert Rhodes house in Seattle, WA (10th Ave and E Howe). The home was designed by A. W. Gould in 1914-15. Albert Rhodes started the Rhodes Department Store in downtown Seattle which later became Lamonts. The home is rather striking and austere and looks much like other commercial structures designed by Gould including the Artic Building and King County Courthouse (before addition). Though black and white try and picture the green glazed roof tiles!
I'm not sure where this house is/was but it is truely AMAZING. Look at all those details! I'm guessing it's either Western Oregon or Western Washington given the Douglas Fir trees and that it was purchased in Portland.
