Collection Hawley, Brooks
Photographer McBride, C. C.
Date of photo 1896-1897
Description Sumpter. Panorama. Looking southwest.

Note by Brooks Hawley: "Evidently this was taken the winter of 1899-1900. A picture in the Blue Mountain American for June 30, 1900, is very similar. Our house (cutting off the north part of the school house) was built in 1899. The hospital does not show here and it was built in May 1900. This is the spring Anita died from diphtheria."

The hospital was probably built after 1903, since a brochure photo (image 1992.1.99) is dated 1903 and does not show the hospital.

Hawley was born in this house in 1902, but in 1903-1908 the family lived in a house one block north before moving to a ranch east of Sumpter.
