Grace Kern playing an accordion for a caged bird (parrot?), at her home at 1421 N.E. 21st Avenue. The home was built by Kern’s father in 1915 before being sold to the Lloyd Corporation in 1953 for development. She looks intently at the cage where the bird hangs onto the side with its claws and beak. Kern moved several architectural elements from the home to her new residence in southwest Portland. Photographs from this series were published in the Oregon Journal on Friday, July 31, 1953 (negative 4 of 8).
