Robin on the golf course

My random, desktop image of the day comes from the Eagle Point Golf Club. The year was 2013. I was supposed to be shooting golfers, but, you know, that isn’t very exciting, and I was bored.

Butte Creek Mill destroyed on Christmas morning

@ButteCreekMill

Back in 2011 I posted some photos of our visit to Butte Creek Mill. A few days ago, an early morning fire wiped out the place. Today I’m posting a few more images (two of the interior and one of the exterior) from 2011. The fire photo is from the internet.

The first mill was constructed here in 1872. Some things from the original mill still survived until Christmas of 2015. Additions and changes to the building took place between 1912 and the 1930s. The mill had been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1976. It’s all gone now. The current plan is to rebuild.

The Wood House

The Wood House, in Eagle Point, Oregon, turns 145 years old this year. I have never been inside. In fact, until a recent trip to hike near Crater Lake, I had never stopped even though it is right on the road. I paused for this photo because 1) I was by myself in the car for once and 2) the fog made the setting look extra good.

Nazi biscuits?

Swastika symbol on biscuit container

I spotted these containers in Butte Creek Mill along with a ton of other antiques. The swastika was actually a very popular symbol before Hitler and the Nazis made it infamous. I’m guessing that means these biscuit tins are pre-1935. Care for a swastika biscuit from Portland, Oregon?

Happy 4th of July

old classic vintage fireworks fire crackers

For the second year in a row, I’m not in the USA to celebrate Independence Day. Instead, I’m teaching today in Copenhagen, Denmark. I took today’s photo of some vintage fireworks and other Americana last month in the entryway at Butte Creek Mill. There were some fun, old items in the display case like this “Remember Pearl Harbor” pin, Dixie Boy Brand Flashlight Crackers, Doughboy Mammoth Caps, and other old-school fire crackers.
