  1. Hello, Allison H Dean is my grandfather. I would like to purchase this photograph, if it is still available. I love seeing these photographs of the homes he built. I did get to see some of them when I was growing up.

    1. That is so amazing!!! I’m so glad you found this site. We feel very lucky to live in one of his homes.
      The photograph I downloaded from an ebay listing (not mine), and it looks like the listing has been removed. But if I remember correctly the back side said it was from the Oregonian, so I bet if you contact their photography archives you could possibly purchase a copy from them. Thank you for writing!
