O.T. Frasch Images 20-29

O.T. Frasch images in the range from 20 to 29 use multiple numbering schemes. The numbering schemes and duplicate image numbers make it hard to know just how many photos Otto printed.

Within this range, many images are reprints of official Frank Nowell photos taken for the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition. Their image numbers begin with 'X'. Some were printed under Otto's name, while others were apparently printed on contract for Central News Co. and the American Post Card Co.

Topics in the image range from 20 to 29 include:

  • Seattle churches, street regrades, Pike Place Market, and downtown buildings
  • The 1909 Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition (A.Y.P.E.)
  • The 1911-1913 Golden Potlatch Parades

Image numbers for downtown Seattle buildings in the range from 20 to 29 begin with 'R'; usually this prefix denotes Mt. Rainier photos. There is also an image "23X" of the Pike Place Market unrelated to the A.Y.P.E.
