Happy Friday dear Readers, as we roll towards quitting time this week, I wanted to show a series of images that were sent to me in the mail this week. The images were taken by Donald C. Lowe of Sandy, OR and deal primarily with aerial views of OHSU in the 1967 through 1975 period.
|What treasure lies within these envelopes?|
In this packet I received 12 4x6 packets of negatives with a few prints sprinkled here and there. The packets are 4x5" with thumb cuts for easy access to the material therein. Most of the negatives are ~2.5x2.5" and black and white. We also received a couple of 35mm strip negatives as well. Another treat is the 2.5x2.5" color negatives, which I'll show off below.
|Samples of the negatives and two prints|
|Note the clearly visible easel.|
|Great view with rolling hills in the background.|
|1971 - Note the First Interstate Building construction in the background|
|The angle on this one is stunning, especially with the views of the roads cutting across the hillside|
|Focused on Mackenzie Hall, note the number of small businesses in the neighborhood.|
*Yeah, I spent a while rescanning some obviously backwards aerials.
