   When I first read the field notes of Annie Alexander and Louise Kellogg, I was fascinated by the descriptions they wrote about the places they went and the plants and animals they found there. By publishing my field notes on the Internet I hope to follow a little bit in their tradition.

Full Size ImageThe "Elko" border  
  A number of the prints have this very distinctive border. I presume it is the mark of the film processor. I may help group prints made at a similar time.

He telegraphed acceptance.

Full Size ImageHouse at 614 Ivy St.  
  House on Ivy Street.

Text on back, probably in Olga's handwriting:

"Our winter home, 614 Ivy St.. The Bever house, now lived in by Prof. & Mrs. Rice.

"This is the front view from northwest corner. Sidewalk, where I took picture, is about six feet lower than bottom front step.

"Glassed corner is sunroom on west side."

I assume that the location is either Bellingham or Yakima, Washington, but I have been unable to find that address. It's possible the house is in Redlands, California, but the address does not exist there, either.
