    Photograph of the Charles J. Van Eaton Grocery store, 326 4th, Olympia, WA, Thurston County. It is in a multistory brick building with stone pediments. There are two tall storefront windows with a central tall doorway. The words Van Eaton and Grocer are painted on the storefront windows, behind which we can see produce in the windows and also cans stacked on shelves. A retractable awning is over the front. Seven men and a little girl are posed on the paved sidewalk in front. From left to right: 1) a man with an overcoat with a velvet trim collar; he has a cigar in his mouth; 2) a slender, older man with a dark overcoat and hat; 3) a man in long duster-type coat with white cap, and an envelope in his hand; 4) a middle-aged man with a dark suit, white shirt and tie, and a hat, holding paper in his hand; 5) a small girl dressed in a fancy coat with fur trim and a fur muff; 6) a man dressed in outdoor wear with a hat and rough boots; 7) an older man with overcoat and hat and a beard; and 8) a middle aged man with homburg hat and a suit. The building is on a corner and the paved sidewalk extends along the street to the right of the building. A pile of snow may be visible in the distance. To the left of the building is a pharmacy. We can see storefront windows, and signs reading Drugs, and [pha]rmac[y]. There is also a retractable awning over the pharmacy. Robert Esterly, photographer

    [Blacksmith shop, Olympia]
    Creation Date: ca. 1914
    Catalog ID: 2010.149.26.2
    Photograph of a blacksmith shop, name unknown. It is a long, low building with two wide bays, each with hinged, open doors. Sashed windows flank the doorways, and there are smaller windows under the eaves along the two visible sides. Three men in leather chaps, hands on hips and in working clothes, are standing facing the photographer. They are standing on a dirt road or entrance area. Inside the bay opening to the left is a man in a dark suit, barely visible. A spoked wheel is propped against that opening. To the right of this building is a wooden walkway with a waterway visible in the rear. This appears to be Budd Bay or the Deschutes River; it is possible that this business is one of those built on the Fourth Avenue Bridge. Robert Esterly, photographer
