O.T. Frasch Images Acquired in 2009

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.

The number of images purchased leveled off in 2009, giving hope that we could still add to our collection.

  • Seattle parks and downtown buildings
  • Totem Place in West Seattle
  • Ye Olde Curiosity Shop
