O.T. Frasch Images Acquired in 2004

Looking at the O.T. Frasch images we acquired in a particular year won't show patterns; after all, the postcards are purchased at different times from sellers all over the United States and occasionally from around the world. But it's interesting to see how our knowledge of Otto's work has grown over the years, and how many images we've been able to purchase at a time.

2004 marked our first visit to a postcard show in Kent, Washington, just outside of Seattle. Thanks in part to the purchase of a large collection of Frasch postcards, our collection more than doubled in size in one day. We purchased more Frasch images in 2004 than in any other year.

Topics on images acquired in 2004 include:

  • Seattle churches, schools, parks, waterfront, and downtown buildings
  • Seattle street regrade projects
  • The Ballard neighborhood of Seattle
  • Totem Place, Luna Park, and other scenes in West Seattle
