O.T. Frasch Images 10-19

Like O.T. Frasch images in the range from 00 to 9, images in the range from 10 to 19 use multiple numbering schemes. Mt. Rainier photos use image numbers that begin with 'R' and Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition photos use image numbers that begin with 'X'. One photo of an A.Y.P.E. building apparently has the image number "1-1", which is listed here as if it were "11".

Some of these photos were apparently taken soon after Otto arrived in Seattle; for example, one copy of 17 - On Washington Drive is postmarked June 1908, shortly after 1908 Ford Model T automobiles began production. Other photos were taken later; the Golden Potlatch parades began in 1911. We don't know how many images Otto printed or the order in which the photos were taken.

Topics in the image range from 10 to 19 include:

  • Seattle parks, street regrades, and downtown buildings
  • Logging
  • Mt. Rainier ('R' series images)
  • The 1909 Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition (A.Y.P.E.; 'X' series images)
  • The Puget Sound Navy Yard at Bremerton
  • The 1911-1913 Golden Potlatch Parades
  • Frasch family
