O.T. Frasch Images Acquired in 2017

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.

We acquired only a handful of new images in 2017. The majority of images listed for 2017 are courtesy of Dan Kerlee.

Topics on images acquired in 2017 include:

  • Seattle parks and waterfront
  • Seattle street regrade projects
  • The 1909 Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition
  • Totem Place in West Seattle
  • U.S. Navy warships
  • Logging
  • Hood Canal
