Darius Kinsey – Olympic Highway over Quilcene River, 1926 (Photo 251)

Here is another hand-tinted photo by early logging photographer Darius Kinsey of Seattle. If you look closely, you can see that the photo is silver gelatin showing a young boy (in black and white) sitting on the fence of the road. The photo writes: “Olympic Highway above Quilcene River”, signed with “Darius Kinsey, Seattle”. The serial number of this photo is 251, which also shows on the photo.

Interestingly, the photo was hand-tinted by Darius Kinsey’s wife, Alfreda Kinsey. The back of the photo shows her stamp that reveals the date of the coloring 4/1926. The back of the photo also shows the photo shop stamp, as well as Timber Views Co, which was the company owed by Darius Kinsey.
