O.T. Frasch Images Acquired in 2005

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.

2005 was another good year; a second trip to Kent (outside of Seattle) yielded a large haul of Frasch postcards.

Topics on images acquired in 2005 include:

  • Seattle churches, libraries, parks, waterfront, and downtown buildings
  • Seattle street regrade projects
  • The Ballard neighborhood of Seattle
  • Totem Place, Luna Park, and other scenes in West Seattle
  • The University of Washington
  • The 1909 Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition
  • Golden Potlatch 1911-1913
  • Mt. Rainier
  • Tacoma
  • The Puget Sound Navy Yard at Bremerton
  • U.S. Navy warships
  • Logging
  • Hood Canal: Lilliwaup, Hoodsport, Seabeck, and Lake Cushman
  • The Olympic Mountains west of Seattle
  • Ezra Meeker's trip to Washington D.C. and back by oxen-pulled wagon
