Wonderful old home - Possibly Oakland Oregon

Real photo post card mailed from Oakland, OR in 1908. Anyone know if this house is there or if it still exists?

"A Typical Residence, Portland, Oregon" a.k.a. Henry Jagger Corbett Residence

Wonderful view of the Henry Jagger Corbett Residence. Designed by Whidden & Lewis this home was razed in the 1920's and was later replaced with the Masonic Temple at SW Park Avenue and Main.

Playing catch on Harbor Drive, Portland OR

40's or 50's view of playing catch on Harbor Drive. Hawthorne Bridge in the background.

Wonderful interior view with cord pendant light fixtures and shades

This is probably a pre-electric house given the odd simple nature of these electric cord pendants (later addition).

Unusual pocket window sash in Delta Colorado

The dormer to the right appears to have an unusual pocket sash! Note how the window sash is moved up into the top. Very unusual. I've seen these before but it seems almost like there wouldn't be enough room in the peak.... Very cool. The hand writing on the back is hard to make out but it appears to say "Duling House Delta Colo"
