New to the collection are a set of postcards of the area which are some of the more artfully composed in our collection. The date and the aesthetic mood of the images as well as the name in the bottom right hand corner of the postcard lead us to believe that they are the work of pioneer photographer Howard Sands from Portland, Oregon who took photos in Curry County throughout the 1920’s and 1930’s.
You can see more of his artistic offerings such as “Pirates conferring along trail – Camp Sealth, Vashon Island ca. 1925.” on the Oregon Historical Society’s tumblr as well as “Untitled” shown below, from the Portland Art Museum collection.
