A bound volume containing charcoal sketches of Oregon coastal scenes drawn by Alice E. Wilson between 1898 and 1899. The scenes depict houses, landscapes, and canneries in the central Oregon coast region including Garibaldi, Tillamook, and Seaside. A note of provenance taped to the inside of the book reads, “April 22, 1960. This album of original charcoal drawings was donated to the Oregon Historical Society by Dr. O. S. Driskell, D.D.S. Portland, Oregon. His aunt Miss Alice E. Wilson visited beach resorts for many years just prior to the turn of the century. Her pictures are quite authentic and readily identified by older residents. Miss Wilson and Dr. Driskell’s family were in the Old Grimes House the night it was razed by fire. D. H. Bates, Past-President Oregon Historical Society, April 1960.”
