    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Near Fine (Near Fi. Original black and white photo postcard. No date, circa 1930s. 5 1/2" x 3 1/2." Title printed at the bottom of the image. Postcard is unused. Postcard is very clean and intact overall. Slight wear and a couple bumps at the edges. A Near Fine copy. This postcard shows the original Meany Hall on the University of Washington (UW) campus. Meany Hall, or Auditorium Hall as it was known then, was built in 1909 for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition by Howard & Galloway. After the exposition, Meany Hall was used as an auditorium for student assemblies and music, dance, and theater performances. Auditorium Hall eventually took on the name of Meany Hall when Professor Edmond S. Meany, head of the UW History Department, made significant contributions to the university, namely, helping with the organization of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition at UW and the construction of many of the campus's buildings. In 1958, Meany Hall underwent renovations but was damaged in 1965 from the Puget Sound earthquake. The building was subsequently deemed unsafe, so it was demolished. The new vacancy factored into a restructuring plan of the area, which is now an open plaza called Red Square. In 1974, a new Meany Hall was constructed in another location and followed a more contemporary style matching the Odegaard Undergraduate Library instead of the original's Victorian-era, Neoclassical style. In 1995, UW's Allen Center for the Visual Arts was constructed in the spot formerly occupied by the original Meany Hall.

Postcard is very clean and intact except for slight rippling and slight age toning. A Near 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 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.

Vista House was completed in 1918 and still functions to this day as an observatory and rest area. Vista House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original black and white photo postcard. No date, circa 1911-1930s. 5 1/4" x 3 1/2." Title printed at the bottom of the image. "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.".

The Rowena Loops refer specifically to the curving stretches of road on the Columbia River Highway just past the Rowena Crest. Engineers chose to construct loops instead of a steep, high-grade descent over a shorter distance so the road would have a gentler grade for drivers.

At the time, it used innovative technology of floating, hollow concrete pontoons and was the largest floating structure in the world. In 1967, the Lake Washington Floating Bridge was renamed the Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge in honor of Lacey V. Murrow, Director of the Highways for the State of Washington. After the hatchways to the pontoons were accidentally left open for repairs, portions of the bridge sank during a storm in 1990. However, the bridge was repaired and completed in 1993 and now carries Interstate 90.

Vista House was completed in 1918 and still functions to this day as an observatory and rest area. Vista House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
