Making Wicker Baby Carriages.

(PHOTOGRAPHY: INDUSTRIAL)

  • Quantity available: 1
Detroit: D. L. Seymour & Co., [ca. 1918]. Original photograph album containing 14 occupational silver gelatin photographs of men and women laborers crafting and finishing wicker baby carriages. Each photograph measures 6 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. The album opens with an overview of the factory, as men weave long pieces of the fiber into recognizable shapes. There are scenes of stacked armatures and metal wheels, large flats of the raw material, men assembling the carriages, women at sewing machines, rows of beautifully shaped wicker canopies awaiting finishing, the final product being inspected, and overalled workers carting away materials. With the name D. L. Seymour & Co., 1452 Penobscot Blvd, #13, written in white ink on the front pastedown. Housed in the original 9 x 5 1/2 inch pebbled black cloth album. A fascinating item. This is obviously the work of a professional photographer though the impetus behind it remains a mystery as D. L. Seymour and Company was a grain elevator company.

London: A. Arrowsmith, [1802]. A fine and high quality facsimile of this seminal map, commissioned in 2001 by renown Lewis & Clark collector Roger Wendlick. Backed on canvas and measuring 150 x 58 inches, in color, Wendlick commissioned the firm of Ford Graphics of Portland to make this map. Only 21 copies were made and this is the last one (with a letter from Wendlick attesting to this fact). Fine. "The 1802 revision of the map of North America, on display, delineates the complete length of the Missouri River as well as Mackenzie's journey to the Pacific in 1793. The depiction of the Missouri headwaters, which Arrowsmith studied from Peter Fidler's drawing of a map by the Blackfoot Indian Ac Ko Mo Ki, shows several streams joining into two branches of the Missouri which flow almost due east. The southern branch of the Missouri appears to be the main branch of the river and connects to the Knife River; the northern branch is a good representation of the actual course of the Missouri. Although the revised ... Read more

Portland : Printed by Himes & Pratt for the Grand Centennial Fair, 1905. First edition of this map of the Columbia Basin published on the occasion of the Lewis & Clark Centennial. 28 x 21.5 cm, colored. The verso contains a bit of boosterism called "Portland's Inner Trade Area" by D. H. Stearns. Two old fold-lines else fine. There is only one copy of this map located by OCLC and it is obviously a facsimile published by the Oregon Historical Society. Their facsimile is quite a bit smaller and the verso bears the letterhead of the Oregon Historical Society. D. H. Stearns was an early immigrant to Oregon. In 1866, after serving in the Civil War, he left his wife in Virginia and moved to Portland. There he was involved in many pursuits, including being the founder of the very influential Republican newspaper The Portland Bee. His article is a long reassurance to people thinking of coming to Oregon that there is still plenty of government land available in the eastern part of the state.
