"1237" faintly printed in the lower-right corner of the image. Postcard is unused. Postcard is very clean and intact overall. A few faint smudges on the image and on the back. A Very Good copy. This postcard shows the new Alki Beach Park on Alki Beach, Seattle. Alki Beach was already a popular tourist destination by 1902, and in 1907, an amusement park called Luna Park had been built there. In 1911, the city of Seattle opened another amusement park, Alki Beach Park, which was built alongside Luna Park and its famous swimming pools, the Natatorium. Luna Park closed in 1913 but the Natatorium was used until 1931. As for Alki Beach Park, it showcased the Alki Bathhouse, or the Pavilion. The Pavilion was innovative in that it featured luxury locker rooms, a cafe, gym, clubrooms, and a viewing balcony. It is presumably from this balcony that crowds of people are depicted in the postcard. Crowds are also shown on the first floor and in the water below. The following is printed on the back: "The Pacific Northwest Photographic Series; Post Card; Seattle, U.S.A., Robert A Reid, Publisher, 488 Arcade; 55. The new Alki Beach Bathing and Recreation Pavilion immediately became immensely popular. While the bathing season covers only June, July, August and September, the fine marine view and beach promenade make a visit at any season well worth while.".

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original black and white photo postcard. Postmarked August 8, 1908 in Portland, Oregon. 3 1/2" x 5 1/2." Title printed at the bottom of the image.

Postcard is very clean and intact except for some age toning and a few small ink marks in the upper-right corner of the image. A Very Good copy. This postcard shows the Perkins Hotel in Portland, Oregon. There is handwriting in black ink. The unnamed author addresses Verna, who lives in Sacramento. The author writes, "Dear Verna: I'm here today. The x is where my room is situated." To the side of the hotel building, a small "x" marks the room where the author is staying. The Perkins Hotel was built by Richard S. Perkins (1831-1902), an English-American businessman, in 1891 at the corner of Washington Street and Southwest Fifth Street in Portland. The hotel had 125 rooms, a restaurant and bar, and modern amenities such as electric lighting, bathrooms with hot and cold running water, and steam heat. One distinct ornamental feature of the hotel was a gilded cedar statue of a longhorn steer located in an alcove at the top of the hotel's corner tower. The steer symbolized Perkins's longtime career as a cattle drover from which he gained much of his prosperity and wealth. Unfortunately, the financial panic of 1893-1894 led to Perkins selling the hotel in 1896 or 1897 to C. W. Knowles or Charles McIlrath. The hotel regained success by the early 1900s and was a popular meeting place for wealthy socialites. After changing several hands, the hotel building was leased by A. Everett Meyers in 1924. The statue of the steer was removed in 1957, and the building was demolished in 1962 after not meeting safety building codes and standards. However, the hotel's famous statue was preserved and is currently owned by the Oregon Historical Society. From the angle at which the hotel is shown on the postcard, the statue can be seen in its niche on the tower.

Postcard is very clean and intact except for slight age toning on the back. A Fine copy. This postcard shows the Shafer Museum in Winthrop, Washington. The town of Winthrop was officially incorporated in 1924, but settlers first came to the region in 1883 after the discovery of placer gold. The building of the Shafer Museum used to be the residence of one of Winthrop's earliest settlers, Guy Waring, and was colloquially called "The Castle." Waring first arrived to community that would become Winthrop in 1891 and opened the town's first general store. At one point, Winthrop owned every building on main street except for the town hall. However, after several tumultuous periods of alternating success and turmoil, Winthrop became bankrupt in 1916 and left his cabin to his stepson, Harry Greene. Greene and his family eventually left Winthrop, and the building was used by the Episcopal Church. In 1943, the building was bought by a local businessman, Simon Shafer, after whom the museum is named. Shafer proposed the building be turned into a museum. The Shafer Museum is now owned and managed by the Okanogan County Historical Society and features local history.

It connected Twin Falls County and Jerome County. By the 1970s, the bridge could no longer accommodate high-volume traffic and heavier loads, so a new truss-arch bridge, the I. B. Perrine Bridge, was constructed in 1976 a little to the east. The Twin Falls-Jerome Bridge was eventually disassembled. Wesley Andrews (1875-1950) was a Canadian-American photographer. He moved to Baker, Oregon in 1904 to set up his first photography studio. In 1929, he moved to Portland and worked there until 1940. Many of his photography subjects comprise landscapes and city views.

Postcard is very clean and intact except for slight age toning on the back. A Fine copy. This postcard shows the completed Oneonta Tunnel. The Oneonta Tunnel runs directly through Oneonta Bluff. The Oneonta Tunnel was built in the 1930s to accommodate a new portion of the Columbia River Highway. A railroad had already been built directly against the Oneonta Bluff, so engineers concluded the most efficient option was to blast directly through the bluff. During the 1930s and 1940s, the Oregon Highway Department closed access to the Oneonta Tunnel as part of its plan to modernize the Columbia River Highway. The Oneonta Tunnel remained decommissioned until 1986 when legislature was introduced to reconnect historic portions of the Columbia River Highway to the new one. The Oneonta Tunnel was restored in 2006. Unfortunately, the Oneonta Tunnel fell victim to vandalism and the catastrophic Eagle Creek Fire in 2017. However, there are plans to restore the tunnel once again. Restorations to the Oneonta Tunnel are planned for late 2020 into 2021.

Postcard is very clean and intact except for slight age toning on the back and a small smudge at the top of the image. A Near Fine copy. This postcard shows the Shepperd's Dell Bridge, also known as the Youngs Creek Bridge, in Shepperd's Dell, a small canyon in Multnomah County, Oregon. Shepperd's Dell has alternate spellings including the one in the title as well as "Shepperds Dell." The bridge was designed by Karl P. Billner, who worked on other bridges lining the Columbia River Highway, and was completed in 1914. The canyon was carved by a creek which has two nearby waterfalls. Due to the relative difficulty in reaching the waterfalls, the bridge is arguably the most famous feature of Shepperd's Dell. The postcard depicts two vintage vehicles, perhaps motor tour cars, on the road. The Columbia River Highway is carried by the Shepperd's Dell Bridge.
