O.T. Frasch Images Acquired in 2006

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.

Visiting several dealers directly during a trip to Seattle in 2006 yielded another big batch of postcards.
