Mattie Gunterman was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1872. She moved west to Seattle in her late teens, bringing her Bull’s Eye camera with her. She traveled throughout the Pacific Northwest with her husband and son, working as a camp cook, laundress, and photographer. She appeared in many of her photographs “by using a long piece of rubber tubing which was attached to her camera’s pneumatic shutter at one end with a rubber bulb at the other. Squeezing or stepping on the bulb released the shutter and made an exposure” (source).

Group at the Hollow Tree, 1904 by Vancouver Public Library Historical Photographs on Flickr.
The Hollow Tree in Vancouver’s Stanley Park has been a tourist attraction  and the most photographed feature of the park for many years. It was severely damaged in wind storms in 2006. In 2015, the 800 year old Hollow Tree will enter a new phase of life when Douglas Coupland’s full-size gold replica is installed.

Camille Clifford (Mrs. H.L. Bruce) (Mrs. J.M.J. Evans) (LOC) by The Library of Congress on Flickr. Camille Clifford was a well-known actress of the Edwardian era and one of the quintessential Gibson Girls. I use the term actress loosely, because although she was famous for her stage appearances, they were mostly non-speaking, walk-on roles. Think of her as the Edwardian celebutante (but in a good way).
