42 Historical Photos Of Oregon Northwest Ghost Towns Mines Stages Early 1900s For Sale
All of these photos are reproduction copies (nice ones too) of original postcards and photos from the late 1800’s into the early 1900’s. There are a total of 42 photos and most of them are from the state of Oregon. All of them have a stamp on the back that says “From Collection, Doug DeRoest 482 Modelaire Drive La Grande, Oregon.” Sadly Mr. DeRoest passed away in 2001 but I found his obituary and in part it said this….
“Mr. DeRoest was well known internationally for being an accomplished historian. He had many fans and followers throughout the world. He published many articles pertaining to the history of the Northwest, with an emphasis on postal history. Mr. DeRoest was instrumental in starting the groundwork for the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. He also was adamant about the protection of the Chinese Cemetery in Baker City and its historical value.”
I believe most of these photos were taken by him and of his collection of historical photographs. Many of them still have the original negative too. They all measure about 8” x 10” and all also have handwritten identification on the back. Perfect for anyone with interest in Oregon history. Following is a brief description of what you’ll find in this group. I’ve taken what’s written on the back and also what might be printed on the front of the photo.

CONDITION OF ITEMS:
Handwritten items such as diaries and letters are never usually in mint condition. I try and describe my items the best way I can and post as many photos as I can. If a diary is tough to read for me I always say so in the description. If it is in bad condition I also say so and I usually describe the condition at the end of my descriptions. I have never, or I should say rarely, had a handwritten piece be in mint condition and there is a very good reason for that; they are made of paper, they’ve been carried around sometimes for 100’s of years and have been opened and shut hundreds if not thousands of times. So, please keep all of this in mind when purchasing diaries and letters from me..
MY BLOG: I’ve decided, finally, to start a blog site using the diaries in my personal collection. Over the years I’ve got so many amazing people emailing me asking me to share from my own personal collection of antique diaries. I’ve been trying to develop a web site but that is taking time so I thought I’d do this first and also facebook. There is also a page on the blog where I’ve written about why I collect. You can search for the blog by putting into one of the search engines (such as Google) the name; sallysdiaries (no apostrophe and all one word).
