Title: ["William Owen Bush" with agricultural products]
Catalog Id: C2016.0.89
Creation Date: 1890-1910
Description: Photograph of William Owen Bush, or a manipulated image of him, of Tumwater, WA, Thurston County with a display of agricultural products, at an unknown location. The bulk of the photograph is a large display room. A tall cabinet at the rear is filled with grains. Above the cabinet is a placard reading Thurston County W.O. Bush Cereal Exhibit. Standing on the cabinet also is a stuffed owl and another stuffed bird. Deer heads and antlers are mounted on the wall. A stuffed bald eagle is mounted on a pillar in the center of the room. On a table are jars full of fruits and nuts. In the foreground is a table with recessed boxes, one of which holds the 1890 Whitham and Page promotional map of Olympia, WA, Thurston County. Another placard at the rear wall brags about the many awards received for Thurston County agriculture. Behind the display table is a young man, unidentified. To the right of the photograph stands an elderly man identified on a mounting inscription as William Owen Bush. He has white hair and a full white beard and mustache. He is wearing a three-piece suit. The photograph appears to have been manipulated in some way, because the agricultural displays and part of the floor can be seen through his clothing. In addition, black ink has been applied to the area behind his head to create the illusion of a shadow. William Owen Bush was the son of pioneer mixed-race George [Washington] Bush. He was a renowned farmer and state legislator.
